    Rescue Mission

    What do you do when you see a panhandler? Do you give them money? Or feel guilty if you don’t? If you’d like to give to those experiencing homelessness, the best way is to donate to organizations that can truly help them. The Rescue Mission of Salt Lake provides emergency services and addiction recovery throughout the state of Utah, regardless of their place in life, gender, race, religion, age, or diversity.

    Share a Smile

    Did you know that your oral health offers clues about your overall health? Or that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body? Daily brushing and flossing keep bacteria in our mouths under control. But it’s hard to brush and floss when you’re not in a stable home. Those who are experiencing homelessness are much more likely to have dental problems.

    Research has proven that people who set goals are more successful in life than those who don’t. But something you may not know is that those who make a lot of goals struggle to define the ones that matter the most to them. The end result? They lose sight or feel overwhelmed and don’t make a change at all.

    The Christmas Box International

    In Utah, there are over 11,000 youth experiencing homelessness. Most lack the essential life skills or a positive role model and have few people to turn to for help. The Christmas Box International embraces them while partnering with local, national, and international communities. Their goal is to prevent child abuse and improve the quality of life for children, teens, and young adults who have been abused, neglected, or are facing homelessness.
