SALT LAKE CITY -- Providers of services to the homeless are gathering in Salt Lake City Wednesday and Thursday to share best practices as part of the Homeless Summit.
Participants will tour shelters and housing units and discuss new trends and challenges serving the homeless.
"There's a lively exchange of information. It's very dynamic. It's very important for us to learn what others are doing, and we can learn from each other in how to improve service delivery," says Matt Minkevitch, executive director of The Road Home shelter.
Minkevitch says thanks to the permanent housing The Road Home has built as a result previous summits, they have been able to accommodate the surge in homeless people over the last two years.
