You’re Invited: Flathead Youth Home Opens New Facility

By Beacon Staff

After 12 years of operation and two moves, Flathead Youth Home finally has a place to call their own. And you’re invited to come check it out.

On Thursday, May 28, the Youth Home is hosting an open house celebration from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. There will also be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. including several elected officials and representatives of the Chamber of Commerce.

Earlier this month, workers for Swank Enterprises put the finishing touches on Flathead Youth Home’s 5,600-square-foot, 10-bedroom house on the corner of Eighth Avenue East North and Oregon Street. Flathead Youth Home is a shelter for kids, ages 10 through 18, in crisis. It is one of three attention homes in the state under the umbrella of Missoula’s Youth Homes Inc., a nonprofit organization that also provides group homes, wilderness treatment programs, foster care and adoption services. The shelters give kids who have emotional, social, protective, behavioral or chemical dependency issues an alternative to the streets.
