shaylaIn 2014, The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) heard about a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Deseret Industries and we knew immediately, that we could not pass on the opportunity to provide better services to our clients. We met Clark Meredith and his team to discuss the Community Grant and how it could benefit the clients we serve.

The Community Grant gives the WCA an opportunity to provide vouchers to clients in order for them to purchase furniture and merchandise from the Deseret Industries. When clients move out of the shelter they work with their Case Manager to obtain furniture for their new “forever home.” The Deseret Industries makes that possible for so many families. In 2015, we were able to provide vouchers to eleven families that transitioned out of the shelter and we are happy to announce that we have been approved for another grant this year.

A mom and her five children came into the shelter at the beginning of the year and she has successfully transitioned into her home a few weeks ago. This family will be the first family to utilize the Community Grant for 2016 and she states, “Being able to get beds for my kids means the world to me. I know that they will be able to get a good night’s sleep and be comfortable. As a mother, that is the best feeling.” The following artwork was completed by the client’s son.
