Overview

The Millcreek Promise Initiative is a unique collaboration, with United Way of Salt Lake, their newly formed Millcreek Promise Leadership Committee and many additional partners still to join who will mobilize and support the success for all Millcreek youth and families through specific goals in areas of:

  • Enhancing the economic well being of Millcreek residents who are unemployed or underemployed or that have had life experiences that have denied them from access to education or vocational training that would result in their being able to better provide for themselves and their families
