Homeless Strategies and Resources
South Salt Lake City is dedicated to the health, safety, and welfare of all our residents. Anyone who is currently facing homelessness, experiencing it, or knows someone in crisis has access to our robust network of federal, state, and local resources to address their needs. For additional information and resources, please reach out to our Homeless Strategies Department or our Homeless Resource Officers.
Once a month, there is a Men’s Resource Center Community Meeting. These meetings will include Police, Fire, EMS providers, community-based partners, and City Administration in an effort to ensure that the clients and surrounding community are safe and informed. This is also an opportunity for neighbors, shelter managers, public safety and city leaders to discuss ways to improve the shelter and keep people and properties surrounding the MRC safe. We encourage anyone to participate.
The Men's Resource Center monthly meeting will occur monthly on the third Wednesday of the month from 4:00-5:00 pm. Meetings are currently held virtually, via Zoom. See the "Events" section of the city's homepage for the link to that meeting.
Homeless Resource Officers
In 2018, South Salt Lake Police Department began a program with a specially trained group of police officers to handle the unique circumstances and situations that arise at both the Men's Resource Center and in the community with people experiencing homelessness. Officers work in tandem with The South Salt Lake Homeless Strategies Department, The Road Home, Shelter the Homeless, South Salt Lake Fire and EMS Department, and local South Salt Lake City businesses. This team can respond with both resources and public safety tools as needed.
