Toby’s House Recognized Statewide

We are excited to announce that Toby’s House has been named the Montana Children’s Trust Fund’s Nonprofit Organization of the Year for 2022. Montana Children’s Trust Fund seeks to create a state in which every child is protected from abuse and neglect.

 

Nomination forms were made available on the Montana Children’s Trust Fund website in early March. Community members and organizations were asked to nominate organizations that were committed to strengthening Montana families and child maltreatment prevention by offering effective and innovative programs, by adopting trauma-responsive practices, by engaging caregivers in decisions that affect their families and community, or by developing partnerships and collaborations.

 

Our organization is honored to receive the award for this year for the entire state of Montana. Other organizations to have received the award in the past were: Shodair Children’s Hospital (Helena), Watson’s Children’s Shelter (Missoula), and Mountain Home Montana (Missoula). We’re proud that our tiny nonprofit on the lower north side stood up against the “big dog” organizations that have existed for 20 plus years.

 

We are achieving great things in Great Falls! Please share this post widely to let the entire community know about this!

Giving hope to innocent children in our community.

Last month we took care of a sweet girl who had the biggest, most beautiful eyes I had ever seen. I had just walked into work and after setting down my things I introduced myself to the little girl. She didn’t say much but I made sure she knew she was in a safe place. Her mother had called us needing our services for the day. Mom was beaten up by her husband while their daughter watched.
More and more we are receiving calls like this. Moms, dads, even grandparents needing our help because of violence in the home.
We are proud to be able to help families when they are in need of help with their children. We are even more proud to be able to offer the children somewhere they can be safe and just be kids.

Toby’s House Crisis Nursery receives grant from 1000 in Action

Toby’s House was granted a $7,000 grant from the local non-profit group 1000 in Action. This money is to be used to pay our rent for 4 1/2 months. We are so grateful for the support that we have received from them.

1000 in Action was formed in response to continuing cases of child abuse in Cascade County and the surrounding counties. It was created as a 501(c)3 organization by a group of mothers who were heartbroken over these occurrences and sought to do something to help curb, and hopefully eliminate, this problem. Recognizing there are already many valuable non-profit organizations in our area that provide programs and services related to this cause (i.e., The Dandelion Foundation, Boys and Girls Club of Cascade County, YWCA, Toby’s House, etc.), our focus is to provide funding support for these types of organizations.
