On this week’s Episode of Insight on Impact we feature Mike Boehm, CEO of Watson Children’s Shelter.  Mike talks about the mission of Watson’s, who they work closely with in Missoula to promote the well-being of the children they serve, the complex issue of deciding when children should be in out-of-home care (and when they shouldn’t be), their exciting new program called Healthy Foundations, and how Montana state budget cuts affected their organization.
