Thanks for mentioning Salt Lake. I spent a lot of time there and the city’s efforts to assist those marginalized was very noticeable to an outsider. For example I noticed most grocery store baggers would be people with developmental disabilities and you couldn’t walk downtown without seeing tons of advertisements directed to homeless and impoverished people on where and how to receive assistance.
It probably doesn’t hurt that Utah is consistently ranked as the MOST generous state in charitable giving. Talk is cheap!
