    The Christmas Box International

    In Utah, there are over 11,000 youth experiencing homelessness. Most lack the essential life skills or a positive role model and have few people to turn to for help. The Christmas Box International embraces them while partnering with local, national, and international communities. Their goal is to prevent child abuse and improve the quality of life for children, teens, and young adults who have been abused, neglected, or are facing homelessness.

    Holiday Message

    During this holiday season, SelectHealth would like to acknowledge all of the local organizations and volunteers making a difference in communities across our great state. Utah Gives Back is a program that brings together the collective efforts of many. In 2018, we were able to recognize 52 organizations and gather volunteers to give their time and resources at The Ronald McDonald House, South Salt Lake City’s Fitts Park, Wasatch Community Gardens, Courage Reins, and Salt Lake City Fisher House. Through these events we were able to improve lives and better our communities, and we are thankful for your support. To be involved in future events, visit utahgivesback.com.

    Open Wheelchair Foundation

    Traditional motorized pediatric wheelchairs are expensive, heavy, bulky and require modifications to the family’s vehicle and home. The Open Wheelchair Foundation developed a solution that addresses all off these issues by creating a do-it-yourself motorized chair that you can lift with your pinky.

    Thanksgiving Message

    Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to connect with family, eat delicious homemade food, and give thanks. I also hope that we can take time to look after our communities. The benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. Giving to others reduces stress, can increase a skill, and promote our mental and physical health.

    Benefits of Being Insured

    While it’s important to think about others and give back to your community, it’s also important to take care of yourself. Your emotional, mental and physical health needs to be addressed consistently and can be the best gift you can give to those you love. To help accomplish this, being insured can make you feel secure, healthy, and happy by paying for preventive services and other medical costs.

    Utah Health Policy Project

    Shopping for health insurance can sometimes be confusing and stressful. That's why Take Care Utah is here to help. Utahns are currently able to sign up for health insurance and may be able to receive financial assistance during the open enrollment period. No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most people need medical care at some point, so having health insurance can protect you from unexpected, high medical costs as well as offer you the freedom to choose a provider that fits your needs. Take Care Utah connects people with trained enrollment specialists across the state to help them find affordable healthcare coverage.
