State Lawmakers Given Tour of Midvale Family Shelter

September 19, 2017

Deseret News reports on a tour of The Road Home’s Midvale Family shelter by members of the Legislature’s Social Services Appropriations Subcommittee.

“A report disrtibuted by Road Home officials said "demand for shelter is disturbingly high." The number of people projected to be served with shelter in fiscal year 2017 — 8,400 — is more than two-thirds of the number who were served in the five-year window of fiscal years 2004 through 2008, according to the report. The number of families served with shelter has also skyrocketed, according to the report, from 288 in fiscal year 2008 to 764 served in fiscal year 2016, increasing each year, statistics from the Road Home show.” Ben Lockhart, Deseret News, September 19, 2017
