Show Up for Foster Care

In Utah, more than 2,600 children are in foster care because their families are in crisis. Through no fault of their own, they have experienced trauma, heartbreak and displacement. 

Every child deserves a safe home with a loving family. By becoming part of the foster care community, you can impact the life of a child immeasurably.

When Spencer was elected to serve as Utah’s Governor I began to contemplate my new role as Utah’s next First Lady. I looked around the country and our state, and felt compelled to spend my time increasing connectedness and empathy amongst Utahns -- and in particular, amongst our children.
 
I know that I am the steward of this special role for only a short time, so while I have it, I am committed to creating opportunities for the people in our great state to get proximate to one another, deepening human kindness and our abilities to connect heart-to-heart. With that in mind,  I was excited to launch my initiative Show Up. 

Show Up is a rallying cry. Through this initiative, we encourage Utahns everywhere to reach out wherever they are and however they can to lift others, serve, show support and be willing to learn about and appreciate different points of view. We Show Up with empathy and understanding instead of prejudice and animosity. We Show Up with open hearts and willing minds. 

We are focusing on four key areas where Utahns can Show Up. The First is mental wellness and life skills - helping educators and students to cultivate the skills they will need for success in the workplace and community. Second, we are partnering with local foster care organizations to care for Utah’s foster kids and the families that support them. Third, through public-private partnerships, we are expanding the incredible Special Olympics Unified Sports program, where children with all abilities participate on sports teams with their peers. Fourth, partner with local businesses, organizations, and communities to do service throughout the state.  

Thank you for your willingness to Show Up for Utah.
