Did you know that only one-third of teen moms receive a high school diploma?

Having the right support in order to continue school can be the difference between success and failure for pregnant and parenting teens. During the “back to school” season, please remember the young girls and babies who depend upon services at Florence Crittenton. They are headed back to school too and need classroom supplies, backpacks and support for child care, clothing and food.

Whether a teen mom decides to raise her baby or make a loving adoption plan, Florence Crittenton is there to help them make healthy choices for a brighter future.

Please show Crittenton’s pregnant and parenting teens you care by making a donation to 901 N. Harris, Helena, MT 59601 or online at

Donna Cain

Florence Crittenton board president

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
