Family Support Center of the Uintah Basin
Located at 259 N 700 E in Roosevelt, the Family Support Center of the Uintah Basin has been open since April 1989 to serve families in Daggett, Duchesne, and Uintah counties. The original center was established in a house on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation in a small area called Independence. Since that time, there have been a couple of building changes, but we are currently located in a comfortable house in Roosevelt, UT that has had some additions and remodeling to better house our Crisis/Respite Nursery.
From the beginning, child abuse prevention has been the main focus of the Family Support Center. In order to accomplish this, the Crisis Nursery was started to help give parents a timeout when they were feeling stress in their lives. This resource continues to be our main focus.
We provide parenting classes nine months out of the year, using the evidence-based Active Parenting program. Our center also continues to provide resource referrals throughout our community, and we strive to raise public awareness about child abuse year round.Open Resource
