Valley’s homeless programs serve individuals ages 18 and older who are homeless and have a serious mental illness (SMI). Valley works closely with other community resources, such as the Fourth Street Clinic, the Road Home, and the Salt Lake County Housing Authority.
Valley Storefront is a non-traditional outpatient facility that provides services to homeless individuals who have a serious mental illness (SMI) who may also have another disorder, such as substance use. This program acts as an entry point into treatment for those who are reluctant to try traditional mental health options. In addition to our outpatient services, Storefront offers Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and outreach models.
As of 2018, there are an estimated 2,047 homeless individuals in Salt Lake City, 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 with helping individuals with SMI.
