Helping Utah’s Homeless
As Utah’s population grows, so too does the number of people struggling to find a place to live. This episode on homelessness examines the shortage of affordable housing, service gaps and lack of space in homeless shelters, homeless youth, what healthcare resources are available, and what rural communities are doing to help their neighbors who may be experiencing homelessness.
Youth Futures Provides Resources for Utah's at-risk Youth
Youth Futures, a non-profit organization serving Ogden and St. George, provides safe shelter and resources for at-risk youth. In addition to youth services, the Youth Futures street team passes out food and necessary supplies for Utahns of any age experiencing homelessness — and as COVID-19 causes churches and shelters to close their doors, Youth Future's services are needed more than ever.
