You Meet Their Needs. We Will Enrich Their Lives.

Children with no home need our love and support. UMOCA is accepting donations for Youth Futures from now until Janurary 14. Youth Futures envisions a world where all youth have a safe, supportive and affirming place to call home. With our combined efforts, we hope to better the lives of Utah’s homeless youth through contemporary art, education, life enriching programs, safe shelter, and supportive mentors.

UMOCA: For 86 years, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art has served as a conduit for generating dialogue around current issues. Using that dialogue, our education programs help Utah’s youth created connections between their lives and current issues.

Youth Futures: Youth Futures provides safe shelter, collaborative resources, respectful guidance and diverse support to homeless, unaccompanied, runaway and at-risk youth in Northern Utah. Their programs connect each youth with resources to build skills that are necessary for a healthy future in a guided, loving way.

With Your Help: Our gift to Youth Futures will be a curated Art Truck visit for the shelter kids, art making supplies, and the very needed items you provide. They are in need of items such as bus tokens, toiletries, canned meat and jerky, and socks, as well as cash donations and gift cards. You can view their entire wish list here.

Thank you for your donations.
