Instilling Change and Sheltering Youth In Crisis
Behavior change is the goal at the Missouri River Youth and Shelter Home. Up to eight boys, ages 10 to 18, reside in the home where they are guided to achieve individualized goals. Missouri River Youth and Shelter Home is a 24 hour shelter facility, offering emergency placements for youth in crisis as well as long term care.
Youth are placed in the home by the Department of Health and Human Services and Youth Court Services as a result of emotional, social, legal, or family issues. Through a structured behavioral management system, these youth achieve a basic foundation of accountability, responsibility, integrity, respect, and self esteem. Individualized goals are developed to meet each youth's unique needs; addressing the problems requiring placement.
Open to male youth ages 10 to 18.
Referrals can be made by contacting the home directly. 406-761-2135
