Who We Are

Mission & History

Our Story

Intermountain, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1909 as the Montana Deaconess School.  By 1914, there were 72 children, ages 5-14, being served as boarding or day students.  From 1909 to 1971, then known as the Montana Deaconess School, we underwent changes to our name and location, coming to settle in the current location and were renamed Intermountain Children’s Home. 

Since 1982, Intermountain adopted the current Developmental Relational Model, based on a new understanding of what children with challenges really needed to heal and grow and have been working with families from across the nation. 

In 2016, Intermountain expanded into the Flathead, opening a campus in Somers, MT after seeing a longstanding need for services in the area.  

Intermountain Residential has been healing families from Montana and across the nation for over 100 years.
