Original Text

Now, those of us that attended the conference said, "Yeah, these models will work in Utah." But when we got back home, there were many who said, "Nah, those aren't going to work. They won't succeed here." But there was, however, an affordable housing organization who was willing to build our first 100 units. But they had concerns about having 100 chronically homeless people in one location. To address that concern, we decided to create a pilot to test that idea while we built the first 100 units. We would use existing units scattered throughout Salt Lake City.
