LBHS began in 2011 by community residents with nothing more than a passion to serve their community. LBHS was founded in 2013 and received nonprofit status in 2015. We have grown with the support of strong partners such as Utah Supports Advocates for Recovery Awareness (USARA), The National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) Utah, the Utah Department of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH), University Neighborhood Partners (UNP)/The University of Utah, the Salt Lake School District, and others. We currently serve over 600 Latinos annually.
Our work has been recognized through numerous awards including The Pete Suazo Award for Social Justice (2013) and the Outstanding Achievement Award from the YWCA for the mentorship of women (2014).
