Child Abuse Prevention

The Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect is our national and local project. Locally, we sponsor The Parenting Place (a 31 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%.
