At the Dan Fox Family Care Program, we train and license therapeutic foster and adoptive parents, as well as respite parents to provide a break for foster parents. We are separate from CPS/the State, but we work closely with them, and the kids in our care have been removed from their homes by the state of Montana. The majority of our kids need to be adopted eventually. We work with kids age 2-18, but most of them are 6 and older. We are able to license people who live within an hour of Missoula, Helena, Kalispell, Polson, or Hamilton. The training is free and attending it doesn't mean that you are committing yourself to taking a child - it just means that you are ready to start the self-assessment process to see if it is the right fit for you.
