Everyone deserves a warm place to sleep and food to eat no matter what their circumstances. St Anne's Center provides individuals in need with a safe, warm, and secure environment while working towards self-sufficiency and stability. While staying at St. Anne's in Ogden, men, women, and children are provided with food, shelter, and case management.
Since its founding in 1982, St. Anne's has seen a dramatic increase in women and children needing a safe place to stay. Currently they have exceeded capacity, with families and individuals sleeping on the floors in the dining area and lobby. The need for food and shelter continues to increase daily.
To meet the growing needs in the community, St. Anne's is working towards building a new shelter, called the Lantern House. This will be a place of hope for thousands of people facing poverty, hunger, and homelessness in Northern Utah.
SelectHealth recognizes the tireless work of St. Anne's Center as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
