|Utah Foster Care is a statewide nonprofit with a mission to find, educate, and support foster families in all parts of Utah. Our team members live in the cities and towns they serve… they know their communities’ needs. With knowledge and expertise, they reach out to local families, who open their hearts and their homes to abused and neglected children. Our community of support is deep and wide. Each year, these professionals produce incredible results — results which other states hold up as a model of how to take care of their children in need. We surpass goals, set by the state of Utah, year after year. We welcome accountability — and we back that up with a stable financial reporting record.|
It’s because of positive outcomes that Utah Foster Care continues to be a key part of the unique “Utah solution” to an on-going challenge in child welfare — a history of success that stretches back 17 years. That’s when the Utah legislature and governor’s office created us to find innovative ways to meet this challenge by identifying, training, and providing continuing support for foster families.
Children in foster care would not have access to enrichment programs like the Wishing Well Fund, Giving Tree, and Foster Family Camp without your generous gifts. Through donations, Utah Foster Care is able to offer these value-added programs at little or no cost to foster families.

Along with foster families who provide safe and nurturing homes, community support is vital to the children who are served by Utah Foster Care’s programs. We offer our sincere thanks to the companies and individuals who recognize the impact that one caring individual can have on the life of a child.
