Our Story

BUILDING STRONG FAMILIES

The Family Place is all about building stronger families in Cache and Rich Counties. Working with both parents and children, we are here to support good relationships and help develop new approaches to family life. We strive to build stronger families by hosting fun, family-focused events in the community as well as offer a variety of programs such as workshops, counseling, and our Kid’s Place. The Family Place will always be known as a place for families of all kinds. We welcome anyone who wishes to grow closer to his or her family and learn with us!

 

The Family Place was established in 1982 as a small facility in Logan known as The Child & Family Support Center. The Center started with goal of providing a safe shelter for children involved in crisis situations, and has since expanded to meet the needs of all families. We continue to grow to meet the needs of the community. We now have three locations in Logan, Hyrum, and limited programing available in Smithfield.

 

The Family Place is a private 501(c) 3 nonprofit charitable organization governed by a board of directors consisting of local citizens. The organization receives funding primarily through community grants and private donors. In addition to financial funding, The Family Place receives supply donations from various businesses and community members. Many volunteer hours are also given to aid in the progression of The Family Place.
