Little Lambs Foundation for Kids is a 501c(3) nonprofit foundation headquartered in Logan, Utah. Through their Comfort Kit Program, Little Lambs is making a difference in the lives of thousands of children throughout the State of Utah who are transitioning into foster care and emergency shelters. In addition, they also help low income families with supplemental diapers and baby supplies through their Diaper Bank Program. Little Lambs currently provides for over 50 partnering agencies statewide and stocks local emergency safe houses and the Division of Child and Family Services offices with hands-on resources to distribute to children and families in desperate need. Little Lambs delivers these supplies from Logan to St. George and everywhere in between on a monthly or weekly basis.
The Little Lambs Comfort Kit Program makes sure that infants, children and teens entering the foster care system receive a hopeful start by giving them new care bags to replace items they were forced to leave behind, or never had to begin with. Comfort Kits help children to adapt to their new surroundings at an extremely vulnerable time in their lives. The overall goal of the Little Lambs Comfort Kit Program is to distribute a backpack of necessities to every child being placed into foster care and emergency shelters in our distribution locations.
(1) Provide new belongings, comfort and hope to children who must be rescued children who must be rescued from abuse, neglect and abandonment.
(2) Address the immediate physical and emotional needs of rescued children and help support the agencies caring for them.
(3) Provide a sense of self-worth and self-confidence by giving foster children a backpack of new items that now belong to them and them alone.
Little Lambs Diaper Bank exists to fill an unmet critical need for diapers among the most vulnerable in our community. According to the National Diaper Bank Network, 1 in 3 families have to choose between diapers and other basic needs like food. Without an adequate supply of diapers, children can't attend daycare, making it impossible for parents to work or continue their education. An inadequate amount of diapers forces parents to have to leave their child in a soiled diaper longer, which often leads to diaper rash and can cause staph and urinary tract infections. An insufficient supply of diapers is not only a risk for poor infant and child health, but also for maternal mental health. Every baby deserves to be happy, healthy and dry. Little Lambs Foundation for Kids is dedicated to providing these basic necessities that no child should ever have to go without.
In 2019, Little Lambs was able to provide for 12,500 children in need right here in Utah. For more information or to see how you can get involved today visit their website at www.littlelambsofutah.org.
