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 is focused on transforming lives permanently.
The goal is to provide temporary accommodations with a high level of wrap-around supportive services that will help individuals and families experiencing homelessness resolve their immediate housing crisis and swiftly secure permanent housing. Each Resource Center will provide not only a safe, warm place to sleep, but a wide range of services throughout the day including temporary shelter, employment training, life skills, housing navigation, food, medical care, storage, counseling, 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.
