A family-friendly place where guests have access to multiple resources.

There has never been a time in our community where the risks families face has been greater. As a result, in January, Family Promise of Gallatin Valley (FPGV) opened our new 18,000 square foot facility. The first floor is a licensed early childhood learning center, open to all children in our community regardless of their ability to pay full price. The top floor houses Bozeman's only year-around Family Resource Center for families experiencing housing insecurity.

CASE MANAGEMENT

Families meet with a case manager to start housing stabilization planning immediately after being assessed. Our high-touch model of care has proven to intentionally build an environment of encouragement, support, and hospitality for the families and children we serve. We address the issue of family homelessness holistically, providing prevention services before families reach crisis, shelter and case management when they become homeless, and stabilization programs once they have secured housing to ensure they remain independent. Case management is a highly collaborative process and requires mutual participation.
