Sugar House Temporary Emergency Shelter

Mayor Mendenhall and the City Council, along with city staff, service providers, Salt Lake County and State of Utah leadership, announced a plan to expand the number of beds available to our unsheltered neighbors. The Sugar House Temporary Shelter will be located in a vacant building owned by the city’s Redevelopment Agency (RDA) located at 2234 Highland Drive.

The Sugar House Temporary Shelter is a provision for this winter through April 15, 2020 as the city continues to work with providers and stakeholders to assess the scope of needs of the unsheltered population throughout the region and seek out a more permanent solution, including permanent housing.

Geraldine E. King Women’s Resource Center Ribbon Cutting

Over the last two years, Salt Lake City has taken enormous strides in the effort to move from shelter services to resource centers – spaces of hope to affirm the dignity of those experiencing homelessness who will find refuge and renewal inside them. The Capital City has seized a moment of unprecedented, bi-partisan cooperation between leaders at every level of government and in our community to address a humanitarian crisis right in our own back yard. We are committed to providing services, support, resources, and affordable housing to help anyone experiencing homelessness get on their feet again.

On June 21st, Salt Lake City celebrated the opening of the first Homeless Resource Center in the City. Watch the full ribbon cutting below!
