Shodair Receives Grant for Family Housing

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A children’s psychiatric hospital in Helena is nearing its fundraising goal to build housing for families whose children are receiving treatment.

Shodair Children’s Hospital announced Monday it has received a $225,000 “top-off” grant from the Murdock Charitable Trust to help build the Shodair Family House.

Shodair is the only facility for children’s acute and residential psychiatric care in Montana, meaning many out-of-town families need a place to stay while their child is in treatment.

Hospital administrator Jack Casey says the grant will be added to a $500,000 grant from the Montana Mental Health Settlement Trust and other funds raised. The hospital needs another $160,000 to qualify for the Murdock grant. Construction on the $1.3 million project is expected to begin in June.
