Birth Mother Baskets {bmb} is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that delivers gift baskets to birth mothers who have recently placed their babies for adoption.  These gift baskets hold so much more than just the tangible items inside of them.  They are filled with LOVE, warmth, and support.  bmb provides a loving voice saying, "you are not alone, you are loved, you are brave and yes, someone has felt this unbearable pain before."

Please, help us support these brace women who truly give the greatest gift of all . . . selfless LOVE.

West Ridge is designed to assist young people ages 9-18 who have a history of emotional and behavioral problems, low self-esteem, academic underachievement, substance abuse and family conflict.  
The purpose of West Ridge Academy is simple: to send a child home with a change of heart. We are consistently able to do this by applying our foundational principles of Family, Spirituality, Integrity, Work, Service and Gratitude. With each student, a Master Treatment Plan is individually developed and implemented, created specifically for each student’s needs 
The Road Home is a private non-profit social service agency that assists individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Salt Lake County and along the Wasatch Front. Our mission is to help people step out of homelessness and back into our community.  
Originally established in 1923 to assist stranded travelers, the Road Home has grown to address a spectrum of needs that people experiencing homelessness encounter as they work to restore their lives. In addition to operating the largest shelter in Utah, the Road Home has developed a comprehensive housing program that helps people move into housing as quickly as possible. 
Utah Youth Village changes the lives of troubled children and families. The Village offers residential care in Treatment Foster Homes and in Group Homes. The Village also offers in-home help through Families First, an intensive program that teaches parents valuable skills. Other programs include Parenting For Success classes, therapy, and privately funded higher education grants for Village graduates. 
Kids Who Count is an early intervention program.  Early intervention provides services and support to families with children under the age of three with a disability or a delay in development.  Kids who Count provides services to families living within the Nebo School District.
