The Road Home is not closing. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever!
Today, The Road Home is engaged in one of the most transformative phases regarding homelessness in Utah’s history, which has led some to believe that The Road Home is closing. While the downtown Salt Lake Community Shelter is closing in Fall 2019, The Road Home will continue to do its life-changing work, serving families experiencing homelessness in the Midvale Family Resource Center, single men in the new Men’s Resource Center in South Salt Lake, and many more individuals and families in our Permanent Supportive Housing facilities!
The Road Home is a local non-profit organization that has been serving our community for over 96 years by providing emergency shelter, housing programs, and supportive services, to guide Utah’s most vulnerable people to overcome homelessness. Last year The Road Home provided emergency shelter for more than 8,000 people, including over 1,500 children, and housing for more than 3,000 adults and children.
The Road Home’s Work Has a Big Impact on Our Community
Consider what our community might look like if the nearly 11,000 people we serve annually had nowhere else to go? The Road Home has helped over 60,000 people overcome homelessness, whether through a place to sleep or housing assistance.
