No Fixed Address
Leonardo da Vinci’s study of the world also led to a great love for the beings who called the world home. He believed in human dignity and education, while seeking humanity’s natural place within the universe.
No Fixed Address gives people without a permanent residence an opportunity to introduce themselves to the world. As you wander its halls and ponder its portraits, you’ll realize, perhaps for the first time, that these aren’t “homeless people,” they’re people. And they’re just like you.
A MAN ISN’T DEFINED BY WHAT OTHERS THINK OF HIM, BUT BY WHAT HE THINKS OF HIMSELF
1 in every 213 people in Utah is homeless. It’s likely you have a few hundred Facebook friends; several of them don’t have a home to go to at night. What separates you statistically from the person who is #213 is only your friends and family, your job, the size of your debt, your good health, your sobriety and your home.
We are all human. We pass each other on the street. We share the same hopes and dreams, interests— maybe even conversations. We ride the same buses and trains. And when we need a rest, we all find a spot of shade under a merciful tree. We are the same. So why does being able to pay rent or a mortgage divide us so drastically?
Join us in helping to end the homelessness epidemic in Utah. Visit No Fixed Address, learn about the Utah agencies who are looking to help our friends without homes, and give what you can—even your spare change makes a difference.
