Newly hired CEO Laura Michalski kicks off the holiday giving season at Fourth Street Clinic – Utah’s nonprofit that provides health care services for homeless Utahns—by launching GiveOne RaiseTwo. December 1-10, several individuals and corporations will double all donations made to Fourth Street Clinic. This year sponsors have pledged $200,000 in matching dollars, and all funds raised will underwrite the cost of medical services for homeless Utahns and expand mental health and substance abuse services.


This is an exceptional year for awareness on this issue as The Leonardo opens the No Fixed Address: The Faces of America’s Homelessness exhibit that runs through Spring 2015. “Fourth Street Clinic has been apart of the advisory board and is displaying a Homeless Memorial that honors those in our city who have lost their lives to homelessness,” say Michalski. The memorial will be permanently installed outside Fourth Street Clinic when the exhibit ends.

Dr. Ronald Kehl becomes Fourth Street Clinic's first-ever dentist thanks to local business Alsco's $625,000 pledge. As part of its 125th Anniversary, Alsco, an international linen and uniform rental company headquarted in Salt Lake City, has agreed to provide $125,000 a year for five years to fund this position and ensures a January 2014 Grand Opening of Fourth Street Clinic's newly constructed, on-site Dental Clinic. The total annual cost of the Dental Clinic is $450,000, but with Alsco's pledge, Fourth Street Clinic can start saying "Yes" to homeless Utahns in need of dental care. In addition to financial support, Alsco will also donate linen services that will offset current clinic expenses by an estimated $10,000 a year. A

Our board of directors recently delivered a letter to Governor Herbert endorsing a full Medicaid expansion. Read the full letter here.

A visit—any day—to the Fourth Street Clinic’s waiting room quickly reveals that for those living in poverty, dental care is both a top priority and virtually nonexistent. Dani’s mom lost her teeth by the time she was 40 years old, so Dani just expects it to happen to her. Behind her sits Sam who is leaning against the wall with ice to his face as he waits for a follow up medical appointment for a recent tooth extraction. In front of Sam is Sidney who hasn’t had teeth in five years and looks forward to the day that he can eat solid food and smile again. When asked who else in the waiting room has trouble with their teeth, 80 percent raise their hands*.
