To their Homeless that is. A Gift of a Home. YES, the State of Utah has crunched their numbers and came to the conclusion that the money they are spending on ER visits and jail stays for the Homeless in their great State of Utah would be better spent on giving their homeless citizens a home of their own….NO STRINGS ATTACHED.
Services are provided via a caseworker for guidance to self-sufficiency. Even if they fail, they still keep their home.
As a Realtor, that could put my industry out of business! On the other side of that coin, however, is a great feeling knowing that each one of these citizens will have a roof over their head.
Other States are looking at this model. I don’t know where this will end up, but it is a great start.
