November 2022 Donation: Salt Lake Rescue Mission Women's Center
Our November 2022 donation goes out to the Rescue Mission of Salt Lake, a faith-based nonprofit organization established in 1972 to help the homeless and Restore Broken Lives. Stubbs Dental directed our donation toward the Women's Center, a safe place where women and women with children can find safety from abusive relationships, and counseling for addiction. The Women’s Center is home to our New Life Program for women and also provides homeless and low-income women access to emergency shelter, food, clothing, job placement, and more.
In the early 1970s a small group of Salt Lake-based Christian businessmen regularly drove from Salt Lake to Ogden to serve at the only Christ-centered homeless service provider in the State of Utah – The Ogden Rescue Mission. On one trip, a father and son team, Don and Dan Kramer, invited Kay Nakashima, a friend and fellow Christian businessmen to come along. On the return trip, Kay asked why they drove past homeless people in the Salt Lake area to head north. Kay’s question led to this small group of men along with their families to establish the Rescue Mission of Salt Lake.
In 1972 – after much prayer and second mortgages on four of our founders’ homes, the Rescue Mission of Salt Lake began serving our homeless friends and neighbors in the downtown Salt Lake area.
Since then, the Rescue Mission has developed services to meet the immediate needs of our homeless friends (food, shelter, clothing, and more) as well as comprehensive, life-changing programs to provide a pathway off the streets through addiction recovery, Christian education, employment, housing, and restoration of relationships. This includes the addition of our Women’s Center in 1984 where women and children have a safe place to find shelter, clothing, counselling, and addiction recovery services.
