    New Homeless Strategies Director, Christine Simonette


    more ▼ less ▲

    The Homeless Strategies Department was recently created by the City with financing from the state’s Homeless Mitigation fund. The department will work closely with the Men’s Resource Center (MRC) and the SSLPD Homeless Resource Officers with hopes of expanding services for both residents who have homes and those who don’t and navigating how to address this growing crisis. As its newly appointed Director, Christine Simonette brings experience from Utah's Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health and has experience managing several programs across the state of Utah, including serving those who are in substance recovery or gaining reentry into society from prison. Allison Brotherton will serve in the department as a Homeless Strategies Coordinator, and in the past has worked on gaining funds for mental health and the homeless, along with working with other social reform campaigns. 

    To expand their role and influence in the city, the Homeless Strategies team would like to invite citizens to help by providing feedback. The Men’s Resource Center Neighborhood Meeting is held every third Wednesday from 4-5 pm and is open to the public. These meetings will include Police, Fire, EMS providers, community-based partners, and City Administration 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 amount of people experiencing homelessness in the Salt Lake Valley area has grown exponentially in recent years. Homeless Strategies Director Christine Simonette says, “We want to follow the state of Utah’s lead by working towards making homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring. To accomplish this, we need to start making sure that the city’s shelter continues to be a safe space for healing.” Their primary goal is to maintain good relationships with community partners to provide creative housing solutions and rehabilitation resources moving forward.

    Monoclonal Antibody Treatment for COVID-19


    more ▼ less ▲

    Do I qualify for monoclonal antibody therapy?

    “Monoclonal antibody treatments are another tool in the toolbox to keep people out of the hospital, and as a state, we are working to administer every available dose to those who need it. The antibody infusion has proven to be effective, but it can only be administered after a high-risk person has tested positive for the virus. The vaccines remain the best way to prevent someone from being hospitalized because of COVID-19. Around 90 percent of people who are hospitalized with COVID-19 have not been vaccinated.”  Utah Governor Spencer Cox

    You qualify for monoclonal antibody treatment if you are 65 or older, you've tested positive for COVID-19, and it has been 10 days or less since your symptoms first started. You may also qualify if you are under 65, have tested positive for COVID-19, and it has been 10 days or less since your symptoms first started, and you have other health conditions that put you at higher risk. Monoclonal antibody treatment is most effective when given early and the sooner it is given the better.

    Getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent COVID-19. Monoclonal antibody treatment should NOT be used to prevent COVID-19. People who might benefit the most from this treatment are those who are most likely to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19. 

    Visit coronavirus.utah.gov to learn more, or to find COVID-19 vaccination clinics or testing sites.

    Monoclonal Antibody Treatment for COVID-19

    Do I qualify for monoclonal antibody therapy?

    “Monoclonal antibody treatments are another tool in the toolbox to keep people out of the hospital, and as a state, we are working to administer every available dose to those who need it. The antibody infusion has proven to be effective, but it can only be administered after a high-risk person has tested positive for the virus. The vaccines remain the best way to prevent someone from being hospitalized because of COVID-19. Around 90 percent of people who are hospitalized with COVID-19 have not been vaccinated.”  Utah Governor Spencer Cox

    You qualify for monoclonal antibody treatment if you are 65 or older, you've tested positive for COVID-19, and it has been 10 days or less since your symptoms first started. You may also qualify if you are under 65, have tested positive for COVID-19, and it has been 10 days or less since your symptoms first started, and you have other health conditions that put you at higher risk. Monoclonal antibody treatment is most effective when given early and the sooner it is given the better.

    Getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent COVID-19. Monoclonal antibody treatment should NOT be used to prevent COVID-19. People who might benefit the most from this treatment are those who are most likely to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19.

    We are thrilled to add an outdoor fitness station to Bickley Park. This generous donation was provided by AARP and designed by FitLot.

    FitLot

    The FitLot location is adjacent to the Salt Lake County Columbus Senior Center which provides
    meals, indoor classes, and other senior services. The FitLot is accessible to all and free classes
    and instruction will also provide an equitable fitness option for community members of all ages
    and abilities.

    This outdoor and free amenity helps residents build strength, stamina, and balance; spend time
    outdoors improving mood and overall well-being; and stay connected to neighbors and friends.
