Primary Residential Mortgage Inc. (PRMI)
employees recently volunteered at the Utah Volunteers of America (VOA) Youth Resource Center, providing a much-needed service to youth who are at risk of or currently experiencing homelessness. The PRMI Giving Network
, a service initiative created by PRMI, donated nearly 50 team member hours preparing and serving meals for the youth.
“We are grateful to PRMI and all volunteers who become deeply involved in the success of our programs,” said Jayme Anderson, Director of Volunteer Services for VOA. “By providing and serving a meal to our Youth at our Youth Resource Center, our Youth experience the feeling of a community wanting to help and engage in their success.”
Volunteers of America Utah works to break down barriers that have kept youth on the streets. Through donations of money, materials, and volunteer labor, Utah’s VOA Youth Resource Center serves 800 teens each year. They provide a bridge of self-reliance and health for those struggling with homelessness, addiction, and mental illness. They offer programs dedicated to education, job training, and counseling, as well as emergency shelter beds, 24/7 assistance, and providing three meals a day. The organization provides more than 75,000 meals to homeless or at-risk Utahns each year.
“Two of the PRMI Giving Network pillars are to ‘feed’ and ‘serve,’” said Dave Zitting, President and Chief Executive Officer of PRMI. “Because we’re based in Salt Lake City, we want to show our support to these teens on their path of self-sufficiency. We are so grateful to the Youth Resource Center for the opportunity to make a difference and show our support.”
