Montana is in a devastating yet
beautiful
fight for the lives of children who
have been abused and neglected.

The reality is that there are not enough families stepping up to care for these innocent children. We bridge the gap by finding foster families who will do the hard work of caring for the vulnerable, whether a child’s need is a few days, a few months or forever.

The crisis

kids need our help

There are thousands of children in Montana’s foster care system and nowhere near enough families to care for each one. Without stability, safety and nurturing, these kids face a devastating life of hardship.

70%

of girls who age out of the foster system will become pregnant before 21

25%

won't graduate from high school or get a GED

60%

of boys who age out or are legally emancipated will be convicted of a crime

50%

who age out will develop a substance dependence

97%

of young people who age out won't earn a college degree

A family for every child

Every child is a masterpiece worthy of being seen. And every child deserves a chance.

how do we solve this?

People say yes to fostering

Families across Montana must answer God’s call to defend the powerless. Normal, everyday people can change the world when we say yes to something greater than ourselves.
