Valley’s homeless programs serve individuals ages 18 and older who are experiencing homelessness and have a serious mental illness (SMI). Valley works closely with other community resources, such as Fourth Street Clinic, The Road Home, Volunteers of America, Catholic Community Services, and the Salt Lake County Housing Authority.
According to the 2020 Point-in-Time Count, there are an estimated 3,131 sheltered and unsheltered individuals in Utah, 45% of which struggle with SMI. Unfortunately, many homeless individuals struggle with depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, and substance abuse. A person’s mental health can severely affect their cognitive thinking and behavior, which challenges stable income and housing opportunities. Programs that provide stable housing and provide successful mental health outcomes are ideal for helping individuals with SMI.
