The Christmas Box International partners with local, national, and international communities and groups to prevent child abuse and to improve the quality of life for children, teens and young adults who have been abused, neglected, or are facing homelessness. Our motto is simple: every child deserves a childhood. Last year, we served 8,400 unique children and teens who were victims of abuse, neglect and homelessness. Since completing construction of our emergency children's shelters, we continue to grow our programs. From providing a Christmas morning to pairing mentors with teens aging out of foster care, our programs aim to serve the same youth that inspired the first Christmas Box House.
CCWCC serves the community by providing free confidential help for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. We provide 24-hour crisis intervention, emergency shelter, aftercare, and holistic wrap around services to assist survivors in escaping abuse, breaking the cycle of violence, and supporting them through their healing journey. We also collaborate with the community in an effort to end domestic violence and provide preventative education throughout our service area of Iron, Beaver, and Garfield counties. The organization is funded by state and federal grants, foundations, and generous donations from caring individuals and groups within the community.
Catholic Community Services of Utah (CCS) has been empowering people in need along the Wasatch Front to reach self-sufficiency. By giving strength to the weakest in our midst, CCS is able to lovingly serve and provide hope to those with the greatest need in our community regardless of race, religion or personal circumstance. CCS is leading the community in caring for the most vulnerable populations including the homeless, low-income, refugee, and immigrant. Our 8 life-sustaining programs are all designed to achieve the goal of self-sufficiency for everyone who enters our doors. With the help of our community of donors and volunteers we are able to provide 1,200 meals a day at our St. Vincent de Paul Dining Hall, resettle 600 refugees a year, distribute 2.7 million pounds of food through our Joyce Hansen Hall Food Bank, and much more.
