Summer Celebration: Be Your Own Superhero!


Neighborhood House’s Summer Celebration—Be Your Own Superhero!

On Thursday, June 13th, the gates of Neighborhood House will open to the community for its annual Summer Celebration. We will celebrate our 119th year anniversary of providing quality, affordable care by transforming our property into a festival with:

  • live entertainment
  • kids’ games and activities
  • carnival food
  • art and crafts
  • community resource tables
  • raffles, and more!

There will also be a variety of aging-friendly activities for adult caregivers and their loved ones.

Concurrently we are celebrating our 35th year of providing adult day services. This is especially significant as it is also the 35th year adult day services have existed nationally. “We are honored to have been operating for 119 years as a non-profit daycare and 35 years as an adult day center”, said Jennifer Nuttall. “As you may know, about 2/3rds of our operating costs are covered externally, either by public and private grants, or donations from the community. This statistic speaks volumes about the commitment of the Salt Lake City community to help individuals in need. Summer Celebration is our way of giving back”.

Activities will run from 5 PM to 7 PM at our downtown facility which is located at 1050 W 500 S in Salt Lake. All activities, resources, and entertainment will be provided free of cost. This Summer Celebration is superhero themed, so don’t forget your capes and costumes!

Neighborhood House is a 501(c)3 charity that provides quality, affordable day care for children and adults, based on ability to pay. For 118 years, the services of Neighborhood House help families address the care, education and social needs of loved ones. Neighborhood House is the state’s oldest and largest nonprofit provider of care services; over 400 individuals are directly served by on an annual basis by way of a the sliding fee scale.
