Our New Homeless Resource Centers

Shelter the Homeless is currently developing three new Homeless Resource Centers: two in Salt Lake City and one in South Salt Lake. These Resource Centers are part of a broader change to how the homeless response system helps individuals and families.

The goal is to provide temporary accommodations with a high level of supportive services that will help individuals and families experiencing homelessness resolve their immediate housing crisis and swiftly secure permanent housing opportunities. Each resource center will provide not only a safe, warm place to sleep, but also crises services throughout the day including case management, employment services, meals, storage, housing navigation, and connections to long-term community support. Facilities will be served by mobile health clinics, and clients will have on-site access to a nurse manager.

This coordinated community strategy was developed by a diverse group of key stakeholders, including government agencies, various philanthropies, and trusted homeless service providers.
