Every year, more than 2,600 children and teens in Utah are removed from harm, but this is a difficult and stressful experience for a child. They are victims of abuse, neglected by their parents, and fearful of what tomorrow might bring. Unfortunately, some spend months in foster care. About 30% of children in foster care have severe emotional, behavioral, or developmental problems to overcome.
Utah Foster Care (UFC) does a lot, but with your help we can do much more.
“Foster Parents are the arms that hold and comfort the babies who cry into the night because everything familiar to them is gone, through no fault of their own.” — Kelly Peterson, CEO
Support the programs that change children’s lives. Give a child the chance to learn a new skill, join a sports team, and feel good about who they are. Critical funds for these programs are provided by caring community supporters that make it possible to change lives one at a time.
With your talents, your time, and your gifts, you hold a child in your heart where your love will strengthen a vulnerable child in need.
