It's a new day for homeless youths in Salt Lake City as Volunteers of America-Utah opened its 30-bed shelter at 888 S. 400 West Tuesday.

The $6 million, 20,000-square-foot facility will offer 24/7 support. Kathy Bray, the president and CEO of VOA-Utah, said the shelter will offer security to young people ages 15 to 22 and also will focus on health, education and employment.
