TOGETHER, WE CAN SUPPORT OUR YOUTH

Every year in Salt Lake County, more than 9,000 kids are victims of abuse, neglect or foster care disruption. During these stressful periods in their young lives, ShelterKids steps in to provide a warm, supportive and stable environment. We are dedicated to the wellbeing of these youth through emergency residential care, temporary housing, counseling, preventive health, access to education, and recreational activities. We also contribute funding and services to the Salt Lake County Youth Services, which assists families in crisis with immediate safety, shelter, and support.
