I have utilized this program multiple times. As a Social Worker it's frustrating when you are working with a family that desperately need assistance because of no fault of their own and for one reason or another there are not resources available. The Salt Lake Valley Emergency Fund is a viable resource for me as a professional to get help for these families. I appreciate the quick response time, and their compassionate service. This is a great asset to our community!

The Salt Lake Valley Emergency Fund is there to assist crime victims with emergencies, when nothing else is. They work quickly and quitely to provide financial help to people in Salt Lake Valley who are in deseperate need. These are the stories that don't hit the news and children and familes who the general public incorrectly assumes receives all sort of resources. I have applied to "The Fund" to help many of my clients who had no where to go and no resources to help them. The Fund has a quick turn-around time, and I believe they have definitely prevented further harm (injuries and homicide) to our clients.
