Need for Refugee Youth Host Home Open House TODAY!


OPEN HOUSE TODAY FEB 9TH!!

Ensign Peak Services has a significant need for refugee youth host homes along the Wasatch Front!

Host homes are foster homes for unaccompanied refugee minors.  These are children and youth who have lost their parents, have no other means of support and cannot go back to their native country. The United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) identifies and sends children to Utah from Africa, Asia, and Latin America. They are eligible for this program up to the age of 21. Ensign Peak Services anticipates need for 10-12 new youth who will be seeking refuge in Utah. Host homes are reimbursed by Ensign Peak Services for the care and love they provide to the refugee children.

Most of our refugee children are teenagers. The tragedy that is occurring in Africa and Asia makes it very difficult for young children to survive. The children that do survive, typically have older siblings who carry them the long distances they have to walk.

These teenagers are amazing and have overcome so many challenges! They are excited to learn English, gain employment, and become US citizens. They are legal immigrants and have Medicaid to meet any health needs. Many of them love soccer and dancing. They are so full of life and joy!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
