Comings & Goings: Hope Lockers need a home

By Staff


Imagine you’re homeless. You’ve found a temporary job for the day, maybe you’re going in for an interview, but you don’t have s place to put your belongings in the meantime.

One solution hitting Salt Lake streets soon are Hope Lockers. This mobile storage unit, created by Revolution United and The Legacy Initiative, is made up of 32 lockers, each three by two feet, fixed to a trailer. A keypad on each locker allows the temporary user to secure their possessions without buying a lock.

The only problem now is finding a place to put the lockers. “Ideally, we’d like to have them parked next to an organization that already services the homeless,” says David Brooks of Revolution United.

To find out more, or if you have a great home for the Hope Lockers, go to Revolution United Utah’s Facebook page.
