"Housing stability is a key determinant for both physical and mental health. Intermountain’s donation will help facilitate access to health services and improve quality of life to those individuals receiving services in the new resource centers," Preston Cochrane, Shelter the Homeless executive director, said in the release.
Mikelle Moore, senior vice president of community health at Intermountain, said that "we hope to support community organizations that improve prevention, detection, and management of chronic diseases, including those experiencing homelessness that will be served by the partners of Shelter the Homeless, who are even more vulnerable to these conditions."
