Welcome to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids!

Little Lambs Foundation for Kids is a non profit 501(c)3 Organization who provides comfort kits to children ages 0-17 years old who are transitioning into foster care, emergency shelter or who have been affected by domestic violence by providing them with a little comfort in a bag.. Just in Northern Utah alone there are on average of 700 children who are in foster care and 2900 children in the state of Utah at any given time. There are also several children that are in the in-home program through the Department of Child and Family Services.  When a child is removed from their home because of abuse or neglect most of the time they are not able to take anything with them & if they are able they carry their precious belongings in a black trash bag. Can you even imagine?? Little Lambs is currently providing transitional bags to children throughout Utah. We are excited to be able to provide a backpack of items that can provide these precious children with something they can call their own. We believe that this is a tangible way of sending a message of love and worth from our community members. Below you will find a list of items we are collecting on an ongoing basis. Thank you so much for your support! Together we can make a difference. Please call Ted with any questions- 435-764-4439 you can also visit our website at www.littlelambsofutah.org or to make a monetary donation our Paypal address is : littlelambsofutah@aol.com
