FAMILY SUPPORTS AND SERVICES

SAFECARE HOME VISITING
SafeCare is a free, evidence-based program that provides information and resources to families with children age 0-5 in the areas of health, safety, parent/child interaction, communication, and problem solving. Families spend one-on-one time with a SafeCare professional each week for approximately four to six months. SafeCare is available in most of Southwest Montana.
POSITIVE PARENTING CLASS
We receive funding from United Way to offer free parenting classes to anyone in our community. Each session runs for six weeks. Participation certificates and completion certificates are awarded to those who complete the classes. Contact us to register for the next class session.
CIRCLE OF SECURITY PARENTING CLASS
At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you. The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
Duration of Class: 8-week course
Who should attend: Caregivers of children 4 months-5 years old
How to register: Contact Sonja at (406) 723-4019
We provide professional supervised visitation services for families dealing with child custody issues or court ordered visitation. Parents complete an intake appointment with a Connecting Families Coordinator to provide information about their family. Each parent has their own intake appointment. Supervised visits are set up to accommodate the parents, children, and the Connecting Families Coordinator. Intake appointments are approximately one hour with a $25 fee per parent. Supervised visits are generally one hour per week with a $35 fee per hour. Contact us for more information.
