OUR STORY

Ensign Peak Services was conceived and started by Royden Hussey, LCSW. In many ways, our story as an agency is intertwined with Roy's personal story. Roy became a social worker because he was moved with compassion while volunteering with Native Americans and he realized the extensive impact that social work has. After earning his Masters in Social Work from the University of Utah, he recognized the need for foster parents.

With the help of his wife, Dianna, Roy started Ensign Peak Services in 1997. After his passing in 2003, Dianna continued to operate the company and pursue Roy's dream of helping children in crisis. Since 1997, our foster parents and therapists have helped approximately 400 children and youth.

As integral as Roy's story is in the formation of Ensign Peak Services, our foster parents are truly the heart of the agency. Without them, we could not provide stability and a safe place for children and adolescents who have experienced neglect, abuse, and homelessness. Our foster parents give of themselves freely and accept strangers into their home hoping to give youth the attention they need and lend a helping hand up to a better future. Our story is your story; one of compassion and change.
