Kid’s Place & Starfish Children’s Center

The Kid’s Place is a free, temporary program offered to caregivers with children ages 11 and under. Our goal is to provide a safe, caring place for children to stay when caregivers need extra support. We focus on emotions and the needs of children and caregivers. This service is open to all families in our community.
Scheduled Weekly Care
We provide caregivers and children with a weekly 2 hour break on a temporary basis, generally 6 months of care. Call 435-752-8880 for availability, there could be a wait list.

Examples:

  • My wife is in the military and it’s overwhelming to parent our children alone every day.
  • I recently became a single-parent and I need help adjusting.
  • I’m a stay-at-home mom and sometimes I need time for myself.
Crisis Care

Immediate child care is provided for caregivers in the event of an emergency, when other options fall through. Crisis care is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Length of time varies as we work with you.

Examples:

  • I’m having a baby and there is no one to take care of my 3 year old.
  • I have a therapy appointment and my babysitter just fell through.
  • I recently moved here and I don’t know anyone who can watch my kids and I’ve reached the end of my rope.
Date Night
Weekend times available so you can spend time nurturing your relationship. Please call 435-752-8880 to schedule a time, spaces are limited and there could be a wait list.
Adoption Respite
Adoption can be stressful for both children and caregivers. We can help!

Starfish Children’s Shelter

Our Starfish Children’s Shelter is a loving home for children who are transitioning to foster care. While in shelter with us, kids receive care from our highly-trained staff in a safe, home-like environment. We assist them in their road to healing with trauma-informed care and counseling services from our licensed therapists.
