Our regular Summer Dinner program has completed. However, we have expanded our Shriver location from August 10 to August 28. This location will continue to provide FREE meals for kids 18 and under at 1307 S 900 W Monday – Friday from 4-6 pm.


Weatherization is still accepting crisis service calls for non-working furnaces and red-tagged appliances on a case-by-case basis. The program has suspended new applications at this time due to the nature of the program and the need to enter the client’s homes. For current clients waiting for services to be finished, please call and leave of message so our staff can coordinate those services.

We assist income-eligible families with services including Adult Education, Case Management & Housing, HEAT, Head Start, Nutrition and Weatherization to help them achieve self-reliance.
