SALT LAKE CITY -- A new project to fight Utah homelessness now has some additional cash.
The Palmer Court Apartments at 999 S. Main Street in Salt Lake City had an open house Tuesday. The building, which was once an old hotel, has been transformed into a 201-unit housing complex for homeless families and individuals.
At the open house, the Salt Lake Board of Realtors donated $15,000 for furniture and appliances. The Road Home is still putting finishing touches on the apartments, but people have already started moving in.
"We have more families coming to us this year than any year in our history, and we're there for those families. And they're wonderful people. And they've worked very hard," said Mat Minkevitch, executive Director of The Road Home.
The facility also has onsite support services, and Road Home officials estimate 325 people will live there.
