Groups Recommend Ways To Allocate Teens In Crisis Funding

BOZEMAN -

Gallatin County Commissioners are still trying to decide how to allocate $75,000 to help teens in crisis.

A meeting was held on Monday by organizations vying for the funds to explain to others how they would use the money.  

Youth Dynamics operates a youth center group home as therapeutic foster home for teens in crisis.

The Gallatin County Youth Service, Wraparound is designed to keep kids in their home, instead of sending them to group homes.

Previously, the money was used to fund the Big Sky Youth Center Group home. The facility closed in July.

"We want our kids to stay at home. We want to keep families together, keep kids happy, so they commit less crimes," said Ben Kane, Gallatin County Youth Probation Officer.

"Youth Dynamics wants to provide a safe and stable place for kids until their parents return," said Teri Jackson, Youth Dynamics Clinical Director.

The Commissioners would like to see the two groups work together. Details of a future meeting to further discuss the funding options are still being determined.
