The Road Home believes housing is the solution to homelessness.

Our programs help families and individuals move into the housing that is right for them and focus on short-term solutions that lead to long-term stability.

PROGRAMS

HOUSING NAVIGATION PROGRAMS

Housing Navigation services are designed to help people find safe, affordable homes in the community

These services include:

  • Gathering a housing history
  • Understanding what type of housing each household is seeking
  • Identifying and mitigating housing barriers
  • Navigating the array of rental assistance and affordable housing programs
  • Assisting with household eligibility, rental applications, and landlord interviews
  • Providing basic needs for the home, including beds, kitchen items, and food supply.

The Road Home provides these services for families, individuals, and Veterans who are experiencing homelessness throughout Salt Lake County.
Our team is on-site at each of the resource centers in the County and provides mobile outreach as needed to unsheltered people.

RAPID REHOUSING

Rapid Rehousing Program: The Road Home’s Rapid Rehousing Program is nationally recognized as an enduring solution to homelessness. Rapid Rehousing does just that—rapidly helps people like families and veterans move into homes and remain housed. Services are tailored to each household and can include assisting with rental payments, providing basic needs for the home, and connecting people to resources like affordable childcare, public benefits, increased income and employment opportunities, and food security.
The Family Assistance and Support Team (FAST) serves families who benefit from additional aid beyond our Rapid Rehousing Program, like financial assistance and supports for parental health and child development. Case managers, a behavioral health clinician, and a nurse are vital members of our FAST team. This program partners with Artemis Associates using the BSAFE model for families.
As part of Rapid Rehousing, The Road Home helps Veterans and their families move home in our Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program (SSVF). The original grant awarded in 2012 for this program has since doubled, and we partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs and others with the goal to end Veteran homeless.

PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING

Permanent Supportive Housing: Through The Road Home’s Permanent Supportive Housing Program, we provide affordable housing assistance with voluntary supportive services to people experiencing chronic homelessness. These are individuals, including families, with disabling conditions who have been without a home for a long time. We know through research that investing in Permanent Supportive Housing programs help people stay in their homes, improves their health, and also saves communities money. Onsite services—like HeadStart, supports for health and employment, connection to resources, and volunteer-led community activities—help ensure tenants remain stable in their homes. We provide Permanent Supportive Housing to people in need through apartment complexes across Salt Lake County, including Palmer Court (201 units) and Wendell Apartments (32 units). The Magnolia Apartments, to include 65 studio apartments, is under construction and slated to open in May 2021.

PALMER COURT

Palmer Court: Originally a Holiday Inn hotel, Palmer Court Apartments was renovated and transformed into 201 units of permanent supportive housing in 2009. Families and individuals with a former history of chronic homelessness have been able to call Palmer Court home for over 11 years. Onsite supportive services—including Early HeadStart and HeadStart, health and behavioral health supports, employment supports, and volunteer supported activities—ensure that tenants have the resources they need to remain stable in their homes.

HOUSE 20

House 20: House 20 aims to support individuals experiencing homelessness in Salt Lake City who frequently interact with emergency services and have a high number of emergency shelter nights. Delivered in partnership with Salt Lake City government, this intervention aims to provide housing and ongoing supports to some of the most vulnerable in our community. Since its inception in 2015, this program has demonstrated that safe, affordable housing helps to significantly reduce program participants’ use of emergency services and shelter.

WENDALL APARTMENTS

Wendell Apartments: The Wendell Apartments is 32 units of permanent supportive housing and has been operated by The Road Home since 2014. Onsite supportive services are provided for tenants with a history of chronic homelessness.

MAGNOLIA APARTMENTS

Magnolia Apartments: The Magnolia Apartments complex is currently under construction, slated to be finished in May 2021. 65 studio apartments will be available for highly vulnerable individuals in our community that are in need of permanent supportive housing. A robust suite of onsite services, including case management and peer support, will be available to every tenant. We eagerly anticipate the opening of this invaluable new housing resource in our community.
