Community involvement and donations are greatly appreciated to help us meet specific, as well as ongoing, needs of our clients. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for our clients and frequently that goes far beyond providing mental health treatment alone. We have homeless individuals moving into an apartment for the first time who need all of the basics for setting up a household as well as children who need school clothes, warm coats and more. Wasatch Behavioral Health appreciates everyone in the community who assist us with our mission and truly make a difference in the lives of those with a mental illness or substance use disorder.
Listed below are some current and ongoing needs. Please feel free to call about specific projects that you may want to do or talents that you have to contribute.
Wasatch House Thrift Store
The Wasatch House Thrift Store helps our members have clean clothes for daily wear, as well as for job interviews and professional attire. We are always in need of clothing that is in good condition, or gently used. This clothing is used to assist adult clients who are on extremely limited incomes as well as homeless clients. Receipts can be given for donations. Donations can be taken to:
605 E 600 South
Wasatch House also accepts donations of furniture that is in good shape, as well as toiletries for clients who do not have them when they move into new housing.
Please call ahead for furniture and larger items to make sure that we have enough storage space
