Happy Independence Day!


“Thank you for helping Intermountain. It’s helping kids. God bless you.” -an Intermountain child.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again…” Galatians 5:1

As we celebrate the Fourth of July, Intermountain and the Chaplain’s Department wish you the greatest freedom that can be known—the freedom to be all you were meant to be as God’s beloved child! Our children in residential care, as well as the many children Intermountain serves through its community based services, are working hard for freedom from shame, negative self-image, substance abuse, and darkness in their past. It’s a difficult work, but they are doing it with God’s help and the care of parents, foster parents, case workers, therapists, counselors, and more.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” 2 Corinthians 3:17

Just as it took an army and war had to be waged for our country to be founded in freedom, every day is a battle for the hearts, minds, and souls of children. Thank you for being a part of the “Intermountain Army”—bringing freedom with you to those who are hurting. As God has blessed us and blessed America, we are working together to make that blessing a reality for EVERY child in our midst.

Thank you,

Chaplain Chris Haughee
