BENEFITING: Youth Homes

Mary Breton

THE STORY:

Youth Homes started out as District Youth Guidance Home in 1972, under a grant to open one of the first community-based group homes in Montana. Throughout the 70’s and into the 80’s, Youth Homes was able to expand into three homes aimed at serving the crisis needs of adolescents and runaways. These programs offered 24 hour supervision, as well as a foster care program to provide kids with suitable family placements. Youth Homes went on through the years to recognize the serious needs of youngsters under the age of 11, and established the Sherry Mahon Francetich Children’s home in 1994, an emergency shelter outside of the Missoula county, as well as a separate boy’s treatment home and Francetich children’s home. Youth Homes is now a five million dollar organization, serving 150 families and kids every day, operating seven group homes that work to provide foster care, counseling, adoption services and family support. These are kids mostly between the ages of 3-18; they have witness domestic violence, have been abandoned by their parents, experienced physical and sexual abuse, suffer from depression and have attempted suicide, they have been homeless and struggle with alcohol and chemical addictions.
The mission of Youth Homes is “To assist every child in finding a sense of belonging and a safe, stable place to call home.” And vision is “To provide an array of services to support children and families of Western Montana, regardless of their ability to pay.”
