People Helping People
Strengthening Families through Successful Employment
People Helping People is dedicated to reducing the number of children living in poverty by teaching low-income women, primarily single mothers, how to earn an adequate income through stable employment that pays a living wage.
Women seeking our services typically want a better quality of life, but lack the training, confidence, and positive work experience necessary to obtain and maintain employment. Our unique employment approach helps low-income women develop the tools, knowledge, and self-confidence necessary to compete for better jobs, seek raises and promotions, and become financially self-sufficient

UtahHealthScape.org helps patients and families in Utah choose the best doctors and healthcare facilities. This easy-to-use, non-commercial site was created by local non-profit HealthInsight with the help of many community partners. The aim of the site is to give people information that helps them make better decisions about their healthcare. This information includes basic, useful information such as which clinics have evening and weekend office hours and which doctors speak other languages, as well as information about the quality of care provided, such as whether a hospital follows surgical procedures that reduce the chance of dangerous infection. In addition to information on doctors, clinics, hospitals, and health insurance plans, UtahHealthScape has recently added information on nursing homes and home health agencies. In response to consumer feedback, the whole site is also now available in Spanish.
Visit the site at utahhealthscape.org.

Since 1894, Neighborhood House has provided care services for children and adults on a sliding fee scale, allowing parents and caregivers affordable, quality options for their loved ones.
The children’s program provides daycare, preschool, after-school, and summer programs for kids aged 2 through 12. The preschool program is NAEYC accredited (http://www.naeyc.org/). Neighborhood House is the only non-profit childcare center with a sliding fee scale in the state of Utah that qualifies for NAEYC accreditation. This demonstrates the staff’s commitment to excellence. Programs for school-aged youth are enriched by meaningful partnerships and include regular cooking classes, field trips, and the annual production of an original play.
Neighborhood House has two separate adult day service facilities. The Riverside Center is located on the same campus as the Children’s Daycare Center, which enables intergenerational activities. The Cottonwood Center is located in Cottonwood Heights and provides a smaller, more intimate environment. Care is provided for adults aged 18 and older who are non-combative but require active supervision during the day. Details are available at www.nhutah.org
