This past year has marked a turning point in our program with the acquisition of a nursing home that has enabled The INN Between to grow from 16 to 50 beds and meet our homeless community's need for hospice and medical respite care. Since opening, The INN Between has helped 65 individuals experience the end of life with dignity by providing a home with all basic needs, access to hospice care, and social and emotional support from caring staff and volunteers. We strive to reconnect our clients with their estranged family members so they can make amends and have peace before they leave this world. After they pass, we hold a community memorial service, post an obituary on our website, and place their name on a plaque in our memorial garden. We have helped over 150 individuals through their medical crisis with our respite program. Our goal is stabilizing these clients into community housing, breaking the cycle of homelessness. This year on August 17th, The INN Between celebrated its 4th Anniversary of providing a safe and supporting home to those who have nowhere else to turn at the end of life or during a medical crisis. We couldn't do what we do without the support of wonderful people like you. On behalf of the men and women we house in their greatest time of need, we want to express our deepest appreciation for your support. Please purchase a ticket,, come to our amazing event and have an amazing night! *This is a 21 and over event!

The Sharing Place's Day of the Dead

The Sharing Place's Day of the Dead is not your average fundraising gala. Guests have the opportunity to get sugar skull face paint, visit psychic readers, honor a loved one at our memorial altar, and enjoy a delicious dinner from Red Iguana. This unique event is a celebration of life and remembrance as much as a fundraiser. And, the best part is all funds from sponsorships, ticket sales, and activities will benefit grief groups at The Sharing Place and in the community.

This year’s event also comes at a critical time for The Sharing Place, as we look toward expanding our program into new local communities with the help of an additional location or locations. There are consistently over 100 grieving families on our waiting list at any given time, and we believe it is our duty to support those families through their grief and to make grief support groups accessible to all those in need. Statistics show as many as 1 in 16 children in the state of Utah will lose a parent before age 18 and expanding The Sharing Place will ensure none of these children will have to deal with grief and growing up alone.
