Gov. Gary Herbert toured the Volunteers of America Adult Detoxification Center Thursday, one of the many service organizations in Utah that receive funding through the Pamela Atkinson Homeless Trust Fund.

The governor and the trust fund's namesake,Pamela Atkinson, met with those helped by the center at 252 W. Brooklyn Ave.

Their visit highlighted the opportunity that Utahns have to support the trust fund through donations on their tax form. All donations to the fund go directly to service organizations that provide services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
