Services We Offer

There are other shelters in the valley and they provide a wonderful service. Many of them have rules and regulations that unfortunately leave some people out in the cold, without the help and assistance that they really need. We also serve those who have fallen through the cracks and that others turn away.

Breakfast: We are now serving breakfast at 500 W. 200 S. on the west side of The Road Home Shelter, Monday thru Saturday, 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM.
The Most Important Meal: Science and research has shown that breakfast it the most important meal of the day. That's why we work so hard to provide our clientele with a good Breakfast every morning. Currently, there is only one other service provider in the city that offers a breakfast to the homeless and they only serve 70 or so, of the over 2,000 to 3,000 homeless in Salt Lake City. We serve breakfast every morning Monday thru Saturday to an average of 125 to 150 homeless people! Note: The reason we don't serve breakfast on Sundays is because we don't want to duplicate the efforts of Eagle Ranch Chuck Wagon,(Jenny)which feeds breakfast every Sunday morning under the viaduct at 500 S. 600 W.

Clothing Assistance:Clothing is a basic essential human need. Without it we would surely die of exposure. But our clientele can't afford to go to a thrift store and buy warm clothing, shoes, coats, jackets, blankets or sleeping bags they need. That's why we work so hard to provide our clientele with warm Clothing, Shoes, Coats, Jackets, Blankets, and the Sleeping Bags they so desperately need.

TheLeast Among Us: In order to insure the safety of their patrons, other shelters have rules about the types of people they cannot serve. We try to be very accepting, no matter how desperate a person's situation. On December 26, 1996, a wet drunken man was dropped off by the police as he would have frozen to death and we were the only shelter who would take him. This was also the same day the police served us with the now famous Christmas present (Citation #C505727)

Hygiene Items: Hygiene Items are basic essential human needs. With out hygiene items the homeless could get ill and possibly die. That's another reason we work so hard to make sure that they have these basic essential hygiene items i.e., soap, shampoo, deodorant, razors, tooth paste, tooth brushes, hand cream, combs, and even a hair cut.

Telephone Access Message Services: Telephone services is another essential basic need. Without phone services. The homeless wouldn't be able to get and keep a job, they wouldn't be able to find an apartment, contact or be contacted by their families. We allow the homeless free use of our telephone to find work, contact their employers, contact their families, find apartments, take care of legitimate personal business. We also take messages for the homeless to return important calls i.e., jobs, apartments, emergency calls, etc., that they normally would not get.

New Life Recovery Program: Upward Motions and Second Chance Ranch; We have a small successful (Missionary Program) New Life Recovery Program presently for men only. This gives the men who have life controlling problems a place, the tools and the help that they need to have victory over their addiction or life controlling problems. Through our After Care Program we also help them with jobs, apartment and the transition between.
