Through significant donations to the Food & Care Coalition, doTERRA joins other major donors in the construction of 72 one-bedroom permanent supportive housing units. The company’s donations will also fund the construction of the doTERRA Center for Service, which will further the Food & Care Coalition’s impact on poverty and function as a community service gathering space.
“One of doTERRA’s core purposes is to empower people and communities in their pursuit of self-reliance,” said Missy Larsen, doTERRA Vice President of Philanthropy. “Because the Food & Care Coalition has over three decades of proven success alleviating hunger and diminishing the plights of poverty in Utah County, doTERRA knew a partnership would benefit the whole community. The expansive resources offered on location to help residents on their journey to self-sufficiency offer unique support. Most importantly, the new doTERRA Center for Service will be a place where those living onsite can connect with those from the greater community, including doTERRA Wellness Advocates and employees, to engage in service projects together.”
The 72 units are designed to form a pocket neighborhood, meaning the units will be arranged around a shared common area with wrap-around support services and security.
