Family Support Centers/Outreach

Description: Programs that provide a wide variety of social services that are designed to support the healthy development of families, improve family interaction skills and help fragile families to resolve their problems at a pre-crisis stage before they become unmanageable. Services may be center-based or provided on an outreach basis to families who are initially reluctant to seek support and generally target the specific needs of a particular community. (AIRS PH-2360.2400)

Services Provided: For Montanans who live far away from services, there are few options for receiving support for mental illness without traveling long distances. Since 2009, Mental Health America of Montana has created a “Virtual Drop-in Center,” which utilizes the telephone and internet to provide home-based support services for people with mental illness.

Services Provided: Dan Fox Foster Care & Adoption:
Youth Homes offers foster care and adoption services through our Dan Fox Family Care Program. They place children into families that they have recruited, screened, trained and licensed, plus they support placements made by the Montana Child and Family Services Division (the State child welfare agency).

Family Support Services:
The Family Support Services Program is designed to help families with a challenging child in the home. Their ambition is to help families through crisis, provide them ongoing support, and assist them in developing better skills for living with their children. They believe that with in-home therapy, coaching, and guidance, they can help support parents to maintain the child in the family's care. The length of their services is generally between three and twelve months.

Group Home:
The group homes offer care, guidance and treatment. Each home has a different program design that is targeted to address the unique differences of age and gender and issues of the youngsters in each home. See "Montana Youth Group Homes" for list of group homes and their contact information.

Services Provided: The Mission of the HALI Project is to inspire people with special needs and their families to dream new dreams through teaching and encouragement; and to improve the quality of medical and non-medical care these families receive by providing support to those who serve them.

Research indicates that parents who receive support from other parents are better able to adjust to their child’s disability or chronic conditions and have better attitudes, increased coping abilities, and greater problem solving ability. The HALI Project Medical Home Model trains Parent Partners to serve as the “hub” in primary care practices for coordination of health services and family support, and to ensure that all available services are fully integrated into a patient’s primary preventive health care program.
