Troubled Kids Program Receives Thousands Of Dollars

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

A Gallatin County program that prevents troubled kids from being sent to jail received thousands of dollars to fund its service.

Wrap Around is a family initiative program based on community support.

The program ran into problems when it stopped receiving funding last September from the county's Youth Probation Office.

Gallatin County Commissioners on Tuesday decided they would give the program up to $75,000 in a 12-month period to keep the program up and running. The money was previously used to fund the shelter care.

County leaders said since the program began, it has saved the county more than $100,000 per year.       

"As long as they continue to work the same programs, I think they will save the county money," said Ed Blackman, Gallatin County Finance Director.

Blackman hopes to have the program running again by mid-April.
