Promising Strategies:
Utah Workforce Services and The Road Home
A Public/Private Partnership to End Family Homelessness

A partnership between the Utah Department of Workforce Services (Workforce Services) and The Road Home has helped over 1,000 families quickly exit homelessness. Workforce Services co-locates staff at The Road Home to help families get connected to benefits and provide the intensive employment services they need to quickly find jobs. Workforce Services also provides Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) resources to The Road Home to cover the first four months of families’ rent while rapidly re-housed parents are searching for employment. The Road Home offers housing search assistance, mobile case management services, and any additional rental assistance that families require to achieve housing stability. Both agencies’ resources are being used to provide an integrated employment and housing intervention that helps families stabilize in their own housing quickly and avoid future homelessness.
