Boostability is excited to announce that they will be assisting The Road Home this holiday season with urgent needs and monetary donations and we invite YOU to join us! The mission of The Road Home is to help people step out of homelessness and back into the community.

About The Road Home

The Road Home operates a low barrier shelter with housing-focused services for men, women, and families in Salt Lake County, Utah. This means that they accept people as they are and help offer a safe, warm place of shelter for those who may have no other option.

Over 3.5 million Americans have experienced homelessness at some point this year. For many families, home sweet home during the holidays is likely to be a homeless shelter or some form of transitional housing. The Road Home strives to bring Utah families in out of the cold. The support and generosity of our community is instrumental in making this happen.

Please join Boostability this holiday season as we help provide the basic needs of families staying at The Road Home by donating bedding, clothing, and other needed items.

How you can help?

There are a number of ways of donating.  Together, we are raising money to donate directly to The Road Home as well as collecting much-needed items.  Below, you’ll find the necessary information on how to donate and what items are needed.
