OUR HISTORY

Midvale City began the Community-Building-Community Initiative in 1998 in response to alarming rates of suicide, infant mortality, teen pregnancy, mobility, and limited healthcare and dental access. We have evolved from a dental chair in the basement of City Hall to a trailer and finally to our 3,000 square foot building next to the 7200 South transit stop. A 501(c)3 nonprofit organization since 2014, our generous and committed volunteers and supporters ensure the expansion and deep reach of our life changing programs into the Hispanic/Latino population of Midvale and surrounding communities in the Salt Lake Valley. Our community values us as part of the social fabric and regards our community health workers as credible and trustworthy connectors.
