About

The mission of The Road Home is to help people step out of homelessness
and back into our community.

Who We Are

The Road Home is a private non-profit social services agency that assists individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Salt Lake County and along the Wasatch Front. The Road Home provides multiple services to help people overcome homelessness.

  • Emergency Shelter – The Road Home provides emergency shelter for single men, single women, and families experiencing homelessness. Currently, The Road Home runs the Salt Lake Community Shelter which serves all three populations, and the Midvale Center serving families. 
  • Emergency Services – Our Client Engagement Team offers assistance to low-income and homeless individuals on a walk-in basis with obtaining documents, training, and supplies needed to transition back into the workforce, remain employed, qualify for housing, and more.
  • Case Management – The Road Home’s Case Management team works tirelessly to help each individual who turns to us for assistance in identifying and overcoming the barriers causing them to become homeless. Case managers are also vital in connecting clients to community resources that help the individual leave shelter and live successfully in our community.
  • Housing – The Road Home believes that housing is the solution to ending homelessness. We provide an array of housing programs including Rapid Rehousing for families and veterans, and Permanent Supportive Housing. Each housing program is designed to help with the housing and case management support needed to successfully overcome homelessness.

 

Core Values

Vision

We envision people moving seamlessly from the cold streets into warm housing; from despair and alienation toward home and inclusion. We envision a community that recognizes the inherent dignity of those who live in poverty and homelessness. The Road Home will work with all of our partners to realize this vision.
