We want to take a moment to thank and honor Connie for all of her hard work and dedication to CASA/GAL of Gallatin County! 

Connie, originally from Canada, has been in the Bozeman area for 28 years. She was a nurse for the Belgrade School District and helped develop the health department screening for kids 0-5 years! Due to her career path, she is a very natural advocate and an asset to our organization. 

We asked her what about the CASA mission excites her. She said, " Being a CASA doesn't just end. CASA is not against family and is trying to help build people up in the community."

Thank you Connie for all that you do!

Today is #InternationalDayofFamilies 🌎

Kinship care placements with relatives and close friends have increased from 14% in 2006 to 22% in 2021 and we would love to see those numbers continue to grow. Allowing children to maintain relationships with relatives or kin can increase stability, reduce trauma, and help children maintain cultural connections and a sense of belonging. 

We want to remind everyone that no two families look the same. If you are feeling like you don't have anyone around you today, take a look around at your friends or colleagues, they can be your family too. Better yet, go put your arm around someone today and be their family. 💙

May is #NationalFosterCareMonth and we want to help spread awareness. 

Did you know that nationwide there are over 391,000 children and youth in foster care? 

We are so thankful for all of the amazing foster parents, kinship placements, and organizations out there that step in and step up for the kids in care. You do not have to be a foster parent or placement to make a difference though. Showing up in a genuine and authentic way during their time in foster care and beyond, can help provide stability that kids may not experience otherwise. Whether you are a coach, mentor, teacher, placement, or CASA advocate, you have an opportunity to help them grow. 🌱

With the start of #GiveBigGV only 3 days out, we hope you are thinking about all of the amazing non-profits this valley has to offer! In case you haven't had time yet to research some, here are a few organizations we work closely with.

Royal Family kids camp Montana  has uniquely designed camps and mentoring clubs to serve children who have been abused, abandoned, and neglected. This amazing camp fosters resiliency, self-esteem, hope and positive memories for kids who may not have people in their lives to regularly help with these needs. We are consistently blown away at the impact of this organization!

Hopa Mountain invests in rural and tribal citizen leaders who are improving education, ecological health, and economic development. With over TEN different programs, Hopa Mountain is making a difference for the communities in the Northern Rockies. Their Scholars of Promise, Local Food for Local Families, and Strengthening the Circle are only a few of the programs they offer that impact our community in a large way!

One Valley Community Foundation is the reason we are even making this post! They are the organizers of Give Big and so much more. They take a holistic approach to recognizing and addressing the needs in our valley. Their mission is to connect people who care to causes that matter to ensure that all can thrive in Gallatin County, and they truly do live out this mission! The Gallatin Valley and the non-profits in it would not be the same without One Valley!

@familyoutreachinc  is a home visiting program that focuses on intensive education and support services. They serve both children and adults who have intellectual disabilities or developmental delays and are able to focus on specific needs of both individuals and their families. The impact that Family Outreach makes on our community is huge and we are so grateful they are here!

Thrive provides Gallatin Valley Families with the resources, tools, and support they need to raise healthy, successful children. They have 4️⃣ amazing signature programs - Child Advancement Project (CAP), Partnership Project, Parent Place, and Parent Liaison. Make sure to read more about Thrive and the programs they offer!
