Shelter Group Home
The Shelter Group Home is an emergency residential shelter for teenagers aged 11 to 17 who are in the care and custody of the state of Utah due to alleged abuse or neglect or considered ungovernable. Youth stay here until a more permanent placement is found either in foster care or with family members. The average amount of time for a youth to stay here is one month.
Shelter Group Home has capacity for 16 teenagers and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. During their stay they receive health, medical and dental screening, transportation and participate in recreational activities.
Youth also attend group activities such as life skills, drug and alcohol prevention classes, arts and crafts, community service and off-site activities, such as visiting area theaters, museums and sporting activities. Many of these are funded by community donations and are scheduled either by the Volunteer Coordinator or the Recreational Therapist.
