(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is giving furniture and household goods to formerly homeless people who are moving out of a shelter in downtown Salt Lake City into permanent housing.
The LDS Church has expanded its partnership with The Road Home, formerly Travelers Aid Society.
Road Home caseworkers can now provide some people with vouchers that let them shop for furniture and household goods at Deseret Industries and pick up a two-week supply of food from the storehouse. The church has donated a truck that will soon become The Road Home moving van to help people get food and furnishings to their new homes.
