Unsheltered: Homelessness in Utah

  • Hinckley Caucus Room (Gardner Commons) 260 South Central Campus Drive, Suite 2018 Salt Lake City, Utah 84112 (map)

Why do some people experiencing homelessness stay on the streets or in cars, while others go to a shelter? What can cities do to improve the situation for their homeless residents and their neighbors? How can regular citizens help? State and local experts in homelessness share ideas and discuss how to move forward to create a safe place for all Utahns to thrive.
