youthlincYouthlinc Creates Lifetime Humanitarians One of the best ways to gain perspective on your life—its ups and downs, joys and obstacles—is to venture out of your own back yard.

In that space, in relationship to others, you might also remember that you’re not alone. People outside

yoga-WCsliderHCI’s Wellness-Survivorship Center Heals Lives Not long ago, a patient at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) confessed to the institute’s Wellness-Survivorship Center manager, Shelley White, that she accidentally missed her radiation appointment.

utah food bankUtah Food Bank:  Feeding Utah’s Families While driving to the Utah Food Bank to visit their main Salt Lake City facility, I was picturing a rather large, but cozy, food pantry where anyone in need could come and collect supplies at any time. Boy was I wrong. The Utah Food Bank, founded 108 years ago—how’s that for a yogically auspicious history?—is instead housed in an 86,000-square-foot warehouse that’s stacked to

Children’s Justice Center – A Safe Haven for Kids and their Parents

posted by Charlotte Bell on September 23, 2013 |

children’s justice centerChildren’s Justice Center I’ve driven by the house at least 100 times, perched as it is at the corner of the turnoff to City Creek Canyon, one of my favorite respites in Salt Lake City. It looks just like many of the houses in the Avenues neighborhood—modest and welcoming.

Gentle rains replace the several feet of snow that blanketed our valley from December through much of March. Sunny jonquils dot the landscape and tulips are about to burst forth. For me, it’s past time to plant lettuce, kale, chard, carrots, beets and spinach. I

Cancer Wellness House: Healing the Whole Community

posted by Charlotte Bell on October 7, 2012 |

cancer wellness houseCancer Wellness House:  Healing the Whole Community Back in the ’60s, when my aunt was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer (and lived with it for 25 years), and my uncle with pancreatic cancer, that information was for adults only. Cancer was one of those things you didn’t talk about, and we kids were never to mention it to the people living with it, or to their families. It was considered
