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.
