Mayor's Night at the Rec Center

Crowdfunding event to raise $25,000 to end homelessness in Provo!

Provo City and United Way are trying to raise $25,000 for housing to end homelessness in Provo! Many homeless or soon-to-be-homeless can cover rent but what they can’t cover is the deposit, utilities, or the purchase of necessary items like a bed. The money we are trying to raise will help the Mountainlands Continuum of Care to place people in a home as a first step to building self reliance. This can save our community up to $8,000 per individual versus leaving them unhoused.

Help us meet our goal and Mayor Curtis will throw a donor appreciation night on Friday, August 28! This will be an exclusive after-hour party at the Provo Recreation Center for those who donate to the cause. 

Donate now atHOUSINGFIRSTPROVO.ORG to buy tickets to the Mayor’s Night at the Rec Center. 100% of ALL proceeds of the ticket sale go to support the Utah County Housing First Fund.

FAQ

What is a Housing First approach? It’s a solution to homelessness that seeks to place people in a home as a first step to building self reliance. It solves a short term problem and can save our community up to $8,000 per individual versus leaving them unhoused.

Why give? Donating to the Utah County Housing First Fund is safer, more effective, and more likely to create self-reliant people than giving cash to panhandlers or other methods of handouts.

Who are the people that we’ll be housing? Either homeless or soon-to-be-homeless. These are single mothers, veterans, and families enduring extreme life circumstances.

What will the money be used for? Many homeless or soon-to-be-homeless can already cover rent–but what they can’t cover is the deposit, utilities, or the purchase of necessary items like a bed. You can make up the gap by donating to the Housing First fund to help move people off the streets and into a safe environment.

How can I know my money will be used well? The distribution of money will be decided by a panel of informed community members and case managers, so you can be assured that the money goes only to the deserving.
