The New Face of Homelessness: Young Children and Young Families
FFamilies with children constitute the fastest growing segment of the homeless population nationally and locally. The State of Utah's Comprehensive Report on Homelessness for 2013 reports that homeless persons in families account for 46% of all homelessness in Utah, and house 1Salt Lake County represents the largest population of homelessness in the State at 70%, and that school-age children experiencing homelessness has increased overall by 36% since 2009.
Unfortunately, family homelessness happens far too often. When families, who are barely getting by, stumble and have no resources, homelessness is a real and frightening possibility. These families need help.
The Family Promise - Salt Lake
Family Promise is a non-profit, interfaith organization that provides shelter to homeless families. Since 1995, Family Promise has sheltered families and provided a safe and nurturing environment for them during a very stressful time in their life. We are a unique shelter in that we are comprised of; a Day Center where the families receive Case Management and Housing programming, and a network of area congregations that host the families at night. This faith-community response to homelessness utilizes the many resources that congregations have to offer and provides a refuge to the families that are in a homeless situation.
