A painter volunteers his time to paint the day room at The Road Home in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011.

With help from Salt Lake City's Mayor Ralph Becker, The Road Home was selected by the U.S. Conference of Mayors to be Utah's beneficiary in the national Color Care Across America program, which is providing services at 50 shelters in 50 states in 50 days.
