Non-profit helps Ogden homeless during the heatwave

As Utah continues to deal with record heat, outreach support teams with Youth Futures offer up cold water, food, and information on where people experiencing homelessness can go to cool off.

“That’s really the biggest concern is just making sure people stay cool and stay healthy because the heat can really adversely affect your health, especially when you don’t have an out love most people do: going into their air conditioned home,” Glenn Brainerd said.

Brainerd is a street outreach support worker for the non-profit Youth Futures in Ogden.

“We are giving people two to three waters but when its especially hot, you can run through that in an instant and you are out of water and you are going to acquire dehydrated,” he said.
