Sugarhouse Crisis Nursery back in the late 1970s


Started in 1977 by the Junior League of Salt Lake City and the Utah Association for Children's Therapy (U-ACT), The Family Support Center was established in response to a pressing need for short-term crisis and respite care for children at risk for abuse or neglect. Our services have since expanded in breadth and depth to offer a network of programs to address multifaceted issues facing families today.
