DIVERSE CHILDREN NEED DIVERSE FAMILIES
Children in care come from all sorts of backgrounds—socio-economic, religious, linguistic, and cultural.
Now, imagine how difficult it would be to be placed in foster care with a family speaks a different language, celebrates different holidays, and eats unfamiliar foods. That’s why Utah Foster Care is looking for families as diverse as the children they care for.

- 1 in 5 children in foster care in Utah is Latinx.
- Tribal members are our best hope for finding, training, and supporting Native families to care for Native children in state care. We need Native families across the state in order to ensure that children removed from abusive or neglectful situations remain close to their family, friends, and support networks—and it’s tribal members who can encourage these folks to consider fostering children in their homes.
