Did you know that, at any given time, there are approximately 2,900 children in the state of Utah in need of foster care because their own families are in crisis? In 2017 alone, 4,666 children received foster care in Utah. The sad news? There aren't nearly enough foster families as there are kids needing foster care. That's where you can help! Foster parents come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, you can foster if you are married or single, old or young (at least 21 years of age), rent or own your home, have kids of your own or not and whether you live in an urban or rural setting. You have so much to offer these kids who are hurting and are in need of a nurturing, loving, caring place to heal and just be kids.
If you'd like to learn more about the foster care opportunities in Utah (no pressure--attending the forum is just for you to gather information), hear from parents who are currently fostering and how you might join this noble cause to open your home, heart and life to foster kids, plan to attend this forum. The forum is free and open to the public. Childcare and a pizza dinner is provided.

Utah Foster Care
Utah Foster Care (UFC) is a nationally recognized non-profit which finds, trains, and supports Utah families, who are willing and able to provide a nurturing home for children in foster care. In Utah, more than 2,900 children are in foster care at any given time because their own families are in crisis. Substance abuse is often a factor in cases where children are removed from their biological homes.
Utah Foster Care believes every child deserves a safe home with a loving family. By becoming a foster parent, you are also sharing your strength, your home, and your future—making a commitment to help, heal, and enrich the lives of abused and neglected children.
