Commentary: Success of new homeless services model depends on continued support

Catholic Community Services of Utah and the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City firmly believe in the new homeless resource center model of providing more people-centered services to help permanently move individuals and families out of homelessness.

We understand that the caps on capacity at each of the new centers is necessary to achieve the goal of ensuring that those who come to the centers receive the individualized services they need to stay housed long-term, so they never need a resource center bed or emergency shelter again.

We also know the goal of rendering homelessness brief, rare and non-recurring is achievable only with legislative support.
