Christmas Assistance for Children & Families Impacted by a Loved One’s Addiction

The Riley Foundation’s Sub for Santa program provides temporary Christmas assistance for families recovering from the disease of addiction who are in financial need.

Early addiction recovery comes with many challenges including financial. New sobriety, and the radical changes that come with it, can make providing even a simple Christmas very stressful for recovering parents. Thanks to donations from generous sponsors, we can provide local families with a helping hand during the holidays so that they may experience more of the joy of the season!

HOW TO APPLY: To determine if you qualify, these are the things we consider.

Age of kids: Our program focuses on children 12 and under. In order to be considered for our Sub for Santa program, a family must have at least one child in this age range. Our assistance will extend to older siblings up to 16 years of age.

Income: We’ll use total household income, expenses, and other individual circumstances to determine eligibility.

Location: Families that live outside of Utah County may need to pick up their assistance package in Utah County.

Program Participation: First priority will be given to families who have attended our Seven C’s Workshop Series. Families who have yet to attend the workshops may still apply!

We understand that family circumstances are unique, so if you feel like you really need help, apply and we’ll check it out.
