Addressing the Homeless Problem in Utah


Right now, major efforts are underway to address the state’s homeless problem and a recent survey finds it’s a top ten issue on the minds of Utahns. Shawn Teigen works with the Utah Foundation and he joined me on Inside Utah Politics to explain the survey and what it means.

Homelessness ranks 9th on the list of biggest concerns to Utahns. They’ve been trying to prioritize their efforts to address the homelessness situation. Most people in the state believe we need to concentrate support services to help the homeless. Teigen says every year there between 13,000 and 14,000 people experiencing homelessness in Utah.
