Homeless Resource Centers

Shelter the Homeless is currently building 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 our homeless response system helps individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

The goal of our community is to help identify and connect people experiencing homelessness with stabilizing supportive services to resolve their housing crisis and return to stable housing as quickly as possible. The new Homeless Resource Centers will be secure, limited in size and have essential services located at each facility. There will be immediate access to the emergency services needed to help stabilize crisis situations, and then help individuals connect with the long-term community supports they need to obtain permanent housing. The resource centers will provide not only a safe, warm place to sleep, but also services throughout the day including case management, employment services, meals, storage, housing navigation, and more. Facilities will be served by mobile health clinics, and clients will have on-site access to a nurse manager. 

Most importantly, Shelter the Homeless is working with a multitude of stakeholders, including government agencies, the philanthropic community, and homeless service providers, to develop and support an integrated Coordinated Entry System. This system will help people experiencing homelessness access the services they need in a much more coordinated way.
