Welcome to Idaho Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health

Idaho Federation of Families and Youth M.O.V.E. Idaho will be following federal and state advisories until the covid-19 threat passes.  Our office will be closed, and our youth groups and programs will not be meeting in person.  First and foremost is our concern to not increase community spread.

We will continue to support any families and youth needing resources or peer-to-peer support during this time.  Our staff is ready to respond to your needs as they arise, so please do not feel alone at this time.

Our Family Support Line will be operational from 9am-5pm as usual. Call our main number: 208-433-8845. We have parents, a social worker and youth and young adults available to talk to you. We will respond to your needs, or just listen to your frustrations and support you in some problem-solving – or at least problem-management.

We care about you and know this may be a very hard time.  Please let us support you.
