A disproportionate number of children of color enter the Montana child welfare system, and we provide culturally-appropriate services for these children. We also look for families who, when appropriate, will step up to offer a permanent home to a youth through adoption or by becoming their legal guardian.

Destiny says an ideal night with her new family would be a stay-at-home spa treatment they have together! She is friendly and outgoing and will require a family that is willing to let her explore her pre-adolescent whims and desires, but has sufficient boundaries on these desires to ensure her safety. The best way to connect with Destiny is during a walk or a game of catch. She is articulate, bright and absolutely loves taking care of animals. When asked about her priorities, she would like a family that lets her wear a “little bit of makeup” and clothes that she wants that are mutually agreed on to be appropriate. She loves beauty products like face masks and nail polish.
