The Christmas Box House provides emergency residential shelter and resources for children ages 0 to 11 who are in state custody because of alleged abuse or neglect. The children stay here temporarily until a more permanent place can be found for them. This may be in foster care or with family members.
The Christmas Box House has a capacity for 32 children and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Children utilizing the Christmas Box House receive health, medical and dental screening, transportation and participate in recreational activities.
We are fortunate to partner with the non-profit organization, Christmas Box International, which helps with fundraising for basic hygiene items and for recreational events. Christmas Box International also supports the Christmas Box House located in Ogden.
