General Needs List

COVID-19 Needs List

The Road Home is happy to accept donations of gently used items. We ask that all donations be clean and in good condition when they are donated.

Did you know you can shop items from our Needs List directly on Amazon? Giving back has never been easier!

Homelessness is not just a problem during the holidays and we can use many essential items throughout the year, please see our General Needs List for our most current needs. We greatly appreciate your donations. To ensure that all in-kind donations have the greatest impact, we may share donations received with our many partner agencies including 4th Street Clinic, Catholic Community Services, Deseret Industries, Diaper Bank in Midvale, Indian Walk-In Center, Midvale Food Bank, The Inn-Between, Utah Food Bank, Valley Mental Health, Volunteers of America, Utah, and more, to benefit people in need.

Stay Safe Stay Home Activity Kits

Covid 19 has affected us all! The families staying in The Road Home's Midvale Family Resource Center have very limited space and limited resources to stay occupied and take their minds off of this stressful situation. You can help these families to Stay Home and Stay Safe by providing Activity Kits to help them relax and feel at home in the shelter during this difficult time. Feel free to sign up to provide activity kits here.

Shelter Guest Move-Out Kits

When those staying with us move out on housing programs, they need some essentials! Feel free to make as many kits as you are able, you can even shop for Shelter Guest Move-Out Kits directly on Amazon!

Palmer Court Donation List

Palmer Court is a permanent supportive housing development in Salt Lake City. See the attached list to help a formerly chronically homeless family or individual get settled into their new home with items from the Palmer Court Donation List.
