 Serving families with children. The Midvale Family Center is open year-round.

The Road Home operates our community's low-barrier shelters, meaning there are no requirements to connect to no-cost services including a bed, showers, clothing, blankets, diapers, personal toiletries, etc. We do not maintain a waiting list and provide access to our Midvale Family Center 24 hours/day, 365 days/year (including holidays). We focus on making episodes of homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring by providing housing-focused services and support during a short-term shelter stay. Case managers assist in connecting people with public benefits, substance abuse treatment, mental health assessment and treatment, job training and development, and housing assistance. We work to identify clients who are unable to exit shelter and help clients connect to additional supports and permanent housing opportunities as applicable as well as to onsite resources, including Valley Behavioral Health, Department of Workforce Services, and the Veterans Administration.
