LOGAN — The Family Place continues with their 40 years celebration of serving, protecting and strengthening families in our area.  They do this through workshops, therapy services and education, to name just a few.

On KVNU’s For the People program, Krista Useche, director of the Kid’s Place at the Family Place said they have three different locations – Smithfield, Logan and Hyrum.

“At those centers, we offer three different services. First is our scheduled weekly care, that’s just a break for parents, it’s a two-hour break once a week where they can make appointments, or just have a break to themselves, read a book, whatever it is they might need to do. Then we have our crisis and emergency care for maybe a parent that might just be feeling they’re at the end of their rope and they just need a break, they can bring their children in at any time,” said Useche.

And finally, they provide the Starfish Children’s Shelter.

“So when children get removed by DCFS or law enforcement, they come live with us while they find appropriate placement for them.”

The Family Place relies heavily on community support. At their website (TheFamilyPlaceUtah.org) you can find out more about what they offer, how to volunteer and information about how to make a donation.
