Neighborhood House celebrates 130 years of empowering kids during Utah’s childcare crisis

Salt Lake City—Neighborhood House, a cornerstone of the Salt Lake community since 1894, announces its 130th anniversary. Over the course of its history, Neighborhood House has consistently redefined the concept of affordable care while serving low-income children and aging or disabled adults in Salt Lake City.

“Neighborhood House is more than a daycare center,” said Jennifer Nuttall, Neighborhood House executive director. “Each year, we provide essential support to more than 400 children and 100 aging or disabled adults, 85% of whom come from low-income households.”

Utah First Lady Abby Cox is among the long list of leaders who admire Neighborhood House and its impact on the community.

“Neighborhood House has been a beacon of hope and empowerment in our community for the past 130 years,” Cox said. “Their unwavering commitment to improving lives and strengthening generations of our citizens is truly inspiring. This milestone anniversary serves as a celebration of accomplishments and a call to action for us to support their mission.”

Utah Gov. Spencer Cox will join First Lady Cox at a panel discussion Mar. 1, 11:30-12:30 at Neighborhood House, 1050 W. 500 South, SLC, with other community leaders to speak on Utah’s childcare crisis and the need for Neighborhood House services for kids and aging adults going forward in Salt Lake City.

Neighborhood House’s legacy began when Utah was a territory and children needed food, clothing, care, and education. Today, it’s a multifaceted organization that extends beyond traditional daycare. Its unique intergenerational activities and monthly family fun nights are a testament to its commitment to fostering understanding, compassion, and community bonds.

“We now offer comprehensive services that address our community’s diverse needs, including a food pantry, a cyber center, and a sensory room and sensory garden. Our holistic approach fosters individual empowerment and enables families to thrive,” said Nuttall. 

Approximately 77% of Utahns live in a childcare desert, demonstrating that the majority of our state lacks sufficient licensed childcare to meet families’ needs, a predicament stemming from both limited availability of services and the strikingly high cost of quality care in the state.

“Neighborhood House relies on ongoing support from those in our community who understand the need for quality affordable daycare. Through donations, Neighborhood House is able to offer all of its year-round, full day programs on a sliding fee scale, ensuring vital support is available for all families,” she said.

Additionally, Neighborhood House will host community-wide events, including the free Summer Celebration in June, and the annual Tent Party in September, Neighborhood House’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

“We’re leveraging our anniversary year to share our deep history and transformative results on kids and aging adults in Salt Lake City, something we plan on doing for generations to come,” Nuttall said.
