FY14 Year at a Glance - Numbers

  • We helped 9,570 people overcome homelessness through shelter, case management, and housing.
  • Of those individuals we sheltered 7,082 including:
    • 681 families comprising of 1,047 adults and 1,348 children
    • 997 single women
    • 3,810 single men

What does this mean?

Single MenWe served 115 fewer single men than in FY13.
FamiliesWe served 1 additional family household than in FY13.
Single WomenWe served 98 additional single women than in FY13.

These trends help us determine our future path. We are increasing our efforts to help house chronically homeless individuals, services focused on single women, and seeking resources to offer Rapid Re-Housing to all homeless families in Salt Lake County. We want to see each individual and family living successfully in a home of their own.

  • In FY14, we were able to help 18% more vulnerable individuals into permanent housing than FY13.
  • Through our Rapid Re-Housing program, we served 35% more families than FY13.

Every person was screened for Medicaid eligibility, and moved into an apartment in the community. Their new home came furnished and food provided by the LDS Church Humanitarian Services. We found that a home helped the individual heal, despite their barriers…

Housing Every Chronically Homeless Veteran

“Most importantly, nearly every single veteran in Salt Lake County experiencing chronic homelessness is now living in a home of his or her own.”

It has been an honor for The Road Home to lead our community in efforts to eliminate chronic homelessness among the men and women who served our country in the armed forces. In October of 2012, our community set a goal to end Veteran Chronic Homelessness by 2014.

Over the next two years, the Veterans Housing Group, including shelters, outreach agencies, Housing Authorities, Veterans Affairs, local Housing and Urban Development staff, State of Utah Department of Workforce Services, landlords, government officials, and private and public funders helped 150 veterans overcome chronic homelessness…
