UPDATE Sources say that the Montana Attorney General Tim Fox, has appointed the head of the Department of Criminal Investigation (DCI) (Brian Lockerby) to oversee the Office of the Ombudsman (Dana Toole and Traci Shinabarger.)

Take a tour of this FREE website. We want to help assist you and educate you to help stop child abuse in Montana. Our children are our gift.
Children are to be free of any abuse. Their Rights are what we're all about. We also care about a Parent's Rights who have been ignored.
We will assist you in FREE comprehensive referrals, to help you if you're a child, or a parent. We have links to stories and Blogs in our Service Tab.
Don't give up on your abuse, as a child, or parent of an abused child. We can help you. Just call us, and if you can't afford the call, we'll call you back asap.
Current Montana Laws do not do enough to protect our children. Sometimes, the parents are also ignored, or wrongly targeted, despite compelling circumstances. There are very limited resources or advocacy to assist a child, or parent. We are trying to change that NOW!!!
Presently, according to Montana Child Protective Services, it's not illegal to beat your child unless you leave a visible mark. Montana CPS will only get involved if an alleged abusive parent causes one or more of the following;
1. The loss of sight in one or both eyes.
2. Internal organ damage.
3. Broken bones.
4. A visible mark.
6. Medical, dental, or emotional neglect or endangerment means nothing.
According to CPS, bruising is not consistent with child abuse. Neglect or the infliction of emotional damage to a child is simply ignored and not enforced.
Law Enforcements hands are tied and Police are left waiting for hours for any response to an abuse crime. Police, as well as caring parents are forced to call a CPS toll free number, only to reach untrained and often uncaring personnel. The chance that any allegation of abuse will receive the proper attention that is needed in a "Reasonable timely manner," is slim and unlikely. A seasoned career Police Officer states," I've been here for twenty years and I still don't know what CPS does for a living."
Children's Rights Montana wishes to change this by pro-active involvement and help enable children or parents to become involved. We cannot appoint you legal counsel, or give you legal advice, but we can direct you to organizations that may assist you.
If you are a child, or a parent who has become a victim under Montana's current laws, or a victim of abuse, then we recognize no difference. A victim is a victim and abuse is abuse by "ANY" authority, by any means, leaving all of society as victims of abuse. That's where your tax dollars are going.
We not only invite you to tour this site, but to let us know your own stories and to contact us so that together, we can make a difference.
We offer you every referral we can to help assist you in the direction you need to take at no cost.
This can be from supplying you with phone numbers, addresses and if available, directions to other organizations for help in your area.
We can help give you the necessary tools and the leads to enable you to make the right decision to protect YOUR CHILDREN and YOUR Rights as a parent.
No child should be left behind. Justice delayed, is justice denied.
