For 70 years, Catholic Social Services of Montana (CSSM) has been a pillar in building and supporting Montana families. We were chartered in 1953 and have served as a statewide licensed adoption agency since that time, helping build thousands of families. We are an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, not under the umbrella of any other organization, although we are affiliated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Helena and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Great Falls-Billings.

Every day, we aim to live and serve our mission. We are vehemently pro-life; i.e., we seek to help those in need from the point of conception to natural death. This is accomplished through a variety of ministries, some of which we are in the process of establishing.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Adults interested in fostering and adoption can find support from the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS). The official state website answers commonly asked questions, provides information and resources for families, has information about tax credits and support groups, and more.

The Child and Family Services Division (CFSD) or your local child-placing agency should be one of your first points of contact if you need assistance.

Many online resources are entirely free to parents, such as blog articles. Support groups also exist to help you through the process by providing educational materials or connecting advocates. Foster parents can attend events as well, such as the Child Abuse and Neglect Conference.

Your local foster care agency is always there for you, so don't be afraid to ask questions or raise concerns. You're part of a team as a foster parent, and you can rely on the other team members, such as the case manager or birth parents.

This place likes to take advantage of under aged women, women with no support system and women seeking treatment for post partum. They convince you adoption is what is best when you are not advised or counseled to have other options and when you’re not in a mental state to make such serious decisions. This impacts the mother and child forever. Open adoption isn’t legally binding and parents often choose open adoption to more easily get a child then cut off contact. Be warned they have no ones best interest other than the adoptive families who pay them.

Amazing place if you are curious about adopting or placing your child for adoption. They do not pressure or try to persuade a person to adopt. They only present options so that someone can make the best decision for their circumstance.
