What is a Christmas Box House Shelter

A Christmas Box House is a short-term emergency shelter for children and teens removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, trafficking, or homelessness. Children and teens temporarily live at one of the three Christmas Box Houses while more permanent living arrangements are identified by the Division of Child & Family Services (DCFS). There are three Christmas Box Houses in Utah: one in Salt Lake City, one in Ogden, and one in Moab.

Meet our Christmas Box Alum

The children and young adults we serve in the state’s custody are confidential, and they rarely get to meet our community and wonderful donors who step up to support and rally around them. In turn, our community rarely has the opportunity to meet these wonderful kiddos and learn what becomes of them!
