Volunteers of America, Utah's Youth Resource Center is a drop-in resource center and emergency shelter for all youth aged 15—22 imminently at-risk of or experiencing homelessness.

We provide essential basic need items, such as three hot meals a day, pantry food, showers, laundry, life-skills groups, housing and employment case management, dental and medical care assistance, as well as access to mental health services on-site.
