Little Lambs of Utah


"Providing a little bit of comfort in every bag"

our mission

Provide children in need with a little bit of comfort in every bag.

Little Lambs Foundation for Kids is a non profit 501(c)3 organization who provides comfort kits to children from ages newborn to 17 years old transitioning into foster care, emergency shelter, or who have been hospitalized. Just in Northern Utah alone there is an average of 700 children who are in the foster care system. There is also, on average, 80 children in the In-Home program through the Department of Child and Family Services just in Cache Valley alone. Throughout Utah, over 2,700 children are in foster care because of abuse or neglect. Most children are removed from their home with nothing but the clothes on their backs, and if they are able to take anything with them, they carry their precious belongings in a black trash bag. We are excited to be able to provide a backpack full of much needed hygiene and comfort items which will provide these precious children with something they can call their own, give them dignity, and show them their community loves them.
