Foster Care Month: Ways to Help

“A brush and comb.”

“My sister.”

“Someone to trust.”

These are just some of the things children want and need. The words were on signs carried by a parade of children across the stage at Utah Foster Care’s Annual Hearts of Gold luncheon. The event kicked off National Foster Care Month, a time to recognize we can each play a part in enhancing the lives of children in foster care.

Hundreds of our community supporters discovered how they can help give these children a normal childhood by donating to our special programs like Wishing Well and Foster Family Camp. These programs give them chance to play sports, just like other kids. Having their brothers and sisters in the same home, just like other kids. Spending a weekend camping with their family, just like other kids.

The community responded to these stirring stories with monthly pledges and donations that directly benefit Utah children.

You can help us continue our good work by making your own Hearts of Gold gift during the month of May at https://donate.utahfostercare.org/.
