  • Shriners Hospital for Children

     When most of us hear the word “hospital,” the first adjective that comes to mind is probably not “cheery.” And yet, Salt Lake City’s Shriners Hospital for Children fits that description. The color-studded building sits atop a hill surrounded by an expansive green lawn. As you walk in the front door, you’re greeted by life-sized renditions of Alvin and the Chipmunks.Shriners Hospitals have a long, storied history. Conceived at a 1920 meeting of Shriners International Fraternity, their mission is to provide orthopaedic care to children 18 and under regardless of their ability to pay. From the first Shriners Hospital, founded...

  • Utah Food Bank Feeds Utah’s Families

    Utah Food Bank Fills in the Gaps
    In 2014, USA Today reported that 46 million Americans—one in seven—relied on food banks or meal services to provide for or supplement their nutritional needs. In Utah, 423,000 people—one in seven overall, and one in five children—live with the daily threat of hunger. Last year the Utah Food Bank, founded in 1904, distributed 37.5 million pounds of food, the equivalent of 31 million meals to individuals and families throughout the state.

    Housed in an 86,000-square-foot warehouse stacked floor to ceiling, the food bank’s Salt Lake City distribution center actually has no pantry...

  • The Family Place: A Place for Learning and Healing

    The Family Place
    “You’ve got to have training for every job in the universe except for parenting,” says Esterlee Molyneux. “That’s where we come in. We help parents build on their skills, so that they have a strong foundation.”

    Esterlee is the executive director of The Family Place, a facility that’s part of a network of 13 child and family support centers throughout Utah. The Family Place’s mission is twofold: building stronger families and protecting children. Their mission is accomplished through the center’s two arms: The Family Place and the Starfish Children’s Shelter. In the past year, the two arms...

  • Fourth Street Clinic: Providing Vital Health Services to the Homeless

    Fourth Street Clinic Gives the Gift of Good Health
    In 1987, Dr. Allan Ainsworth was driving in Salt Lake City and saw a long line of people waiting for food and other social services. He thought to himself that no one should ever have to wait for basic life necessities. One year later Ainsworth founded Wasatch Homeless Health Care, Inc.,—now the Fourth Street Clinic—a place where homeless people could receive free primary health care services.

    The clinic started out as a one-room triage clinic with Ainsworth and a part-time nurse running the show. Now it resides in a newly...

  • Humane Society of Utah

    Humane Society of Utah: A Safe Haven for Animal Friends
    Many years ago, I went looking for one of my outdoor, community cats who had disappeared. I checked out both the county’s facility and the Humane Society of Utah (HSU). Both places were housing large numbers of adoptable cats in the standard square kennels, stacked one upon the other. (I did find my feral cat, in a back room reserved for “special needs” kitties.)

    My recent visit to the Humane Society of Utah revealed vastly different digs for the resident cats. A few years ago, funded by cat lovers’...

  • InBody Outreach - Yoga for Everybody

    InBody Outreach Provides Yoga for the Community
    “Yoga is for everybody” is not only a generous thought, but a reality many of us try to integrate in to our yoga classes. Many teachers are happy to welcome students of all sizes, ages and flexibility levels to our classes. But what about those who don’t have the means to attend a community class? What about seniors, people in treatment or in lockdown? Sometimes the people with the least access to the vitality and equanimity that yoga can bring are the ones that need it most.

    InBody Outreach shares on-site yoga...

  • Bad Dog Arts - Art for All

    Masterpiece in Red

    Bad Dog Arts Inspires a Love of Art for Kids of All Ages
    “To be an artist, you have to be a risk taker.” So says Victoria Lyons, co-founder/co-director of Bad Dog Arts, an organization named for the star of an illustrated book, Bad Dog Rediscovers America, by Michael Morgan Moonbird, the organization’s other co-founder and co-director. In the book, Bad Dog is a risk-taking renegade who travels around the country getting into all sorts of sticky situations.

    When Victoria and Michael embarked on the project that would become Bad Dog Arts...

  • Youthlinc - Serving Communities Near and Far

    Youthlinc 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. Stepping away, even for a short time, creates space around the things that vex you, and helps your problems seem a little more surmountable. In that space, in relationship to others, you might also remember that you’re not alone. People outside your home, your town and your country are not so different, despite how different our lives might appear.

    This realization is at the core of Youthlinc’s work, which could...

  • HCI’s Wellness-Survivorship Center Heals Lives

    HCI’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. The patient had spent the day going from appointment to appointment at the Wellness Center. She enjoyed herself so thoroughly in the Wellness Center that she simply forgot she had a radiation session scheduled for that day.

    And maybe that is the point. Patients with cancer do, of course, benefit from the life-saving traditional treatments HCI provides. But perhaps the many activities available in the Wellness-Survivorship Center can...
