FREE meals for all children 18 and under are available for pick-up at 10 Head Start locations. This service is now open to the community and not limited to only Head Start families.

Curbside Meals for aging adults are available for a suggested donation through partnership with Salt Lake County’s Millcreek, Midvale, and Draper Senior Center Cafes.


Weatherization has suspended new applications at this time due to the nature of the program and the need to enter the client’s home. We are still accepting crisis service calls for non-working furnaces and red-tagged appliances on a case-by-case basis. For those who are quarantined, we are able to provide space heaters for pick-up. For current clients waiting for services to be finished, please call and leave of message so our staff can coordinate those services.
