I have worked at a group home here in town for a few years and as a youth case manager for the past two years. I definitely agree Missoula needs a transitional program for children aging out. I see many children slip through the cracks; However, I see more children who butt against anyone wanting to help them. They can't escape their victim stance. They run from foster homes or group homes and don't trust adults to keep them safe and care for them, since their parents never did. Most of my kids aging out qualify for adult care, but refuse to take advantage of adult services. There are many wonderful mental health services in Missoula and I hope these services are highlighted in this movie.
