The Shelter Care Program includes the Shelter Group Home, and Christmas Box House
Shelter Care is for children in the Utah Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) care, ages 0-18, who are at-risk of or who have experienced abuse, neglect or dependency.
This program is open 2/7. It provides temporary placement to provide safety, nurturing, and support. Youth stay until they can return home or a permanent foster home or kinship placement can be found. Shelter Care provides a place that encourages emotional and physical development and well-being. There is no cost to the family or child for these services.
Note: Only DCFS or a sworn police officer can admit a child into Shelter Care.
