Our mission is to serve those touched by the death of a baby through pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or in the first few months of life. Our purpose is to provide support toward healing at the time of or following the death of a baby. We provide education and resources on the needs and rights of bereaved parents and siblings. We strive to set a standard of perinatal bereavement care through a lifetime of support, hope and healing-one family at a time. For support, please contact us at 801-272-5355.
UIRC and Share Parents of Utah will be presenting the selected families with the socks and facilitating the Owlet training program on January 31, 2019 at Meet Me on 33rd.
We appreciate that this is a difficult post for many in our community, but we hope you can support us as we support infertility survivors and those who have suffered pregnancy or infant loss in the unique challenges they face in parenthood.
"You can not get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make." -Jane Goodall

Holiday magic abounds thanks to the help of many hands and a generous community. In a 24-hour period, an empty exhibit hall transforms into a holiday winter wonderland of uniquely decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, playhouses, centerpieces, quilts, and gingerbread houses. Shops are filled with dolls, handmade crafts and quilts, freshly baked cookies and candies, an endless assortment of freshly-made fudge, hot scones, and cinnamon rolls.
While the Festival of Trees lasts just four days, the spirit of this holiday tradition continues all year long in the hearts of those who volunteer and give to the Festival of Trees. Most importantly, the magic continues in the children who are cared for at Primary Children's Hospital.
Funds raised at Festival of Trees are a “A Gift of Love” to children at Primary Children’s Hospital.
