How we help prevent child abuse locally

The Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect is our national and local project. Locally, we sponsor The Parenting Place (a 27 year old non-profit organization) with the sole purpose of Strengthening Families by early intervention, parenting classes and one-on-one counseling. The Parenting Place includes our Exchange Club Parent Aide Center. One of the successes of the Parenting Place over the last 6 years is offering Parent Education and Support for residences at the Missoula Pre-Release Center and Inmates at the Missoula County Jail. People that go through the classes have a recidivism rate of only 14% verses state-wide recidivism of  over 46%.
