Protecting children, strengthening families, and preventing child abuse.
Family Support Center began in 1977 through a collaboration between the Junior League of Salt Lake City and the Utah Association for Children's Therapy (U-ACT). The founding project was the Crisis Nursery located in Sugar House. It was established in response to a pressing need for short-term crisis and respite care for children at risk for abuse or neglect. Since 1977, the Nursery program has expanded to include 2 additional locations in Midvale and West Valley City.
Over the years, the Family Support Center has carefully changed, added, and expanded programs to meet the dynamic needs of our community.
The Family Support Center now provides the following services: Crisis Nurseries, Adoption Respite, Clinical Therapy, and LifeStart Village.
