At Families First we believe that when it comes to raising happy and healthy children, parenting matters. But we also believe that parents matter! There’s no tougher job than raising a child—and no job more worthy of a helping hand. We’re here for you when you need support, guidance, or just a friendly ear. Whether you have questions about your newborn or are dealing with the impacts of divorce on the family or the challenges of raising a teenager, we can help you have more harmony in your home and raise children who become competent and caring adults. Assisting Missoula Families since 1994, our parenting services include:
* A free parent helpline.
* Group and individualized parenting classes on a variety of topics useful in everyday life.
* Parenting counseling services and therapy.
* Parenting plan mediation.
* Shared parenting classes.
Ask about our sliding scale fees and payment plans. No one is ever turned away due to an inability to pay. For more information about these services, visit our website or call (406)721-7690.
In addition to our parenting programs, Families First operates a children’s museum where families can interact, play and bond. Museum visitors have access to our parent resource center, a free service that features parenting tips, community resources and other helpful information.
