Success Stories

   
  Sober Housing
Sober housing is provided for mothers or fathers who do not currently have custody of their children as a result of concerns related to the parent’s prior or ongoing substance use. Parents are provided a safe and sober residence as well as case management services and access to treatment and ancillary service programs so that they may begin the process of reunification with their children. Parents are required to complete appropriate evaluations and intake procedures to determine their needs, and must commit to participation in ongoing services as recommended. Sobriety is monitored through frequent urinalysis and EtG (Ethyl Glucuronide) testing.


Supportive Housing
Supportive housing is provided for mothers who currently have custody of their children, or who have children transitioning back to their full-time care, but who may continue to be at risk for removal of the children as a result of concerns related to the mother’s prior or ongoing substance use. Mothers and their children (ages 12 and under) are provided a safe and sober residence with full-time case management staff as well as access to treatment and ancillary service programs that address not only their needs, but the needs of their children. Supportive housing focuses on providing families the skills and tools they will need to live independently and to provide and nurture their children to the best of their abilities. Parents are required to complete appropriate evaluations and intake procedures to determine their needs. They must commit to participation in ongoing services as recommended. Sobriety is monitored through frequent urinalysis and EtG testing.


Supervised "Main House" Living
Supervised housing is provided for mothers and their children in cases where Child and Family Services has intervened and children, if not placed in this home, would be removed and placed in out-of-home care due to concerns related to the mother’s ongoing substance abuse. The home is staffed seven days a week, twenty-four hours daily and provides the most structured and supervised level of care. Mothers and their children (ages 12 and under) are provided safe and sober residence, full-time case management (both by the staff in the home and Child & Family Services) and access to treatment and ancillary services as recommended to address their life skill and treatment needs, as well as the needs of their children. Supervised “main house” living provides families the skills and tools they will need to live independently and to provide and nurture their children. Mothers are required to complete appropriate evaluations and intake procedures to determine their needs. They are required to comply with probation and/or Child and Family Services’ regulations and must commit to participation in ongoing services as recommended. Sobriety is monitored through
frequent urinalysis and EtG testing and mother’s daily/nightly
service schedules are posted at all times.


Shared Care
Shared care is provided for mothers or fathers and their children in cases where Child and Family Services has intervened, the children are placed in foster care, and the parent(s) are currently participating in the Yellowstone County Family Drug Treatment Court due to concerns related to the parent’s ongoing substance abuse. Shared care operates much like “main house” living in the level of supervision and care, however, is a single family placement in an already licensed foster home setting. Shared care foster homes provide one-on-one family supervision by a foster home and allow parent(s) and children to be “mentored” by that family. Parents have access to treatment and ancillary services as recommended to address their life skills and treatment needs, as well as the needs of their children. Participants are required to complete appropriate evaluations and intake procedures to determine their needs and placement must be approved by Child and Family Services’ Family Resource Specialists. Sobriety is monitored through frequent urinalysis and EtG testing and the parent’s daily/nightly service schedules are posted both with Family Drug Court and with the foster home hosting the family.
