I hope this web site serves as a point of connection for those ministries and children and youth workers that share a passion with Intermountain that EVERY CHILD is a gift from God. I hope that on this site you will find regular encouragement through the blog posts, assistance with communicating God’s love in interesting and creative ways through the resource page, and that those hoping to share the mission and message of Intermountain with others will find this a helpful place to download articles, bulletin inserts, and stories that capture the heart of our work in “restoring hope to children.”
