How to Help

In our community there is an ongoing need for temporary housing for children who have been removed from their homes. The Great Falls Children's Receiving Home is committed to providing the highest quality care for those children, but we rely on the generous support of our community to do so. We have two main revenue streams: funding from the State based on daily child count and in-kind and private donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations. We need your help in order to keep our doors open.

We accept donations of new and gently used household items, clothes, and toys. A list of high-priority items can be found on this page. If you would like a receipt for your donation, please provide us your name and address so that we can acknowledge your gift.

We also welcome financial donations. As you think about your company's charitable giving campaign this year, please consider including us as a designated recipient for a portion of your gift. If you choose to give directly, our mailing address is:

Great Falls Children's Receiving Home
PO Box 1061

Great Falls, MT, 59403

Thank you Great Falls and Cascade County for your continued support. We are so grateful for all you have done. There truly is nothing more precious than a life of a child — they are the road to our future!
