The Christmas Box Houses

Number of youth served 2018:


The Christmas Box Houses, also known as "emergency children's shelters," were built in three Utah cities: Salt Lake City, Ogden and Moab. The Christmas Box Houses offer shelter and food, as well as on-site therapy, medical and dental evaluations, and recreational activities.

Each of the three houses serve the communities in unique ways, a reflection of the carefully cultivated partnerships in each region the houses serve. The Salt Lake Christmas Box House serves children in Salt Lake and Utah Counties through a partnership with the Salt Lake County Division of Youth Services. In Ogden, our emergency children's shelter operates through a partnership with the Division of Child and Family Services. The Moab Christmas Box House also serves the local community as a Family Support Center.
