From The Salt Lake Tribune:

Pamela Atkinson has been an icon for decades, symbolizing to many Utah’s commitment to helping its homeless, refugees and other disadvantaged populations.

Now, the longtime advocate and faith leader — a woman Gov. Gary Herbert refers to as the Beehive State’s own “Mother Teresa” — is being honored with a new round of affordable housing in Utah’s capital for those who most need it.

Officials with the Housing Authority of Salt Lake City broke ground Wednesday on what will be called Pamela’s Place Apartments, a five-story, 100-bed facility at 525 S. 500 West that will be devoted to permanent supportive housing for the region’s chronically homeless.
