An Inside Look at What #YDISTRONG Looks Like Across Montana

The last few weeks have been difficult, but the resiliency and tenacity of our teams working on the front lines has been truly inspirational.

So many of our offices have stepped up to support the children and families in our care during this period of uncertainty. In Kalispell, the local team has created support packages for each of our families to hand deliver to their doorsteps. The packages consist of special handwritten notes to each child and caregiver, as well as parenting tips and crafts for the kids.

In Billings, Community Therapist, Joellen Brennan, has been making it a point to write letters to the kids she works with. She reports, “Every child likes to receive mail.”

According to Joellen, the children have even requested that she draw pictures for them. So, in order to meet their requests, she sought out a few tutorials on YouTube and put her new-found art skills to work- drawing magnificent portraits for the kids. 

Have you heard of the latest trend of painting hearts in windows? This new fad started as a way for people to show connection to one another during a time when we are all physically separated. In solidarity with those in the community, our Butte team spent their Thursday painting hearts in the front windows of their office.

Hearts are painted in the windows of our Butte Community Office to represent emotional connection to Silver Bow County residents, despite the current physical distancing requirements.

We are so proud of all of our staff for their dedication to the children and families we serve. Physical distancing doesn’t mean emotional distancing, and they’re certainly embodying this value through the work they’re doing right now!
