Who: Nomad Alliance Org. https://www.nomadalliance.org/


Nomad Alliance Org. strongly believes the Government is not doing enough to provide adequate shelter, food, clothing and medical supplies to our Unsheltered community. Nomad Alliance Executive Director, Kseniya Kniazeva adds, “Just last month one of our team members saw a family with four or five children, all under 11, setting up a camp outside a human resource center. The mother looked shell shocked, newly homeless, carrying their life processions in a plastic wagon. This is not okay.”


Kniazeva continues: "Lets all work together as a community to build a bigger table that serves our most vulnerable unsheltered people. Our Supply Drive last month served food and distributed warm clothing to close to 500 unsheltered people and their children. There was such a large demand we ran out of food. The Utah Government has increased the number of beds for the unsheltered but its not nearly enough. We rely on our dedicated volunteers and depend solely on private donations since we receive no Government funding."
