Hutchings Museum Institute

John Hutchings was a lifetime naturalist and collector and was a native of Lehi, Utah. His passion for natural history and interest in youth groups inspired many generations and led to the establishment of the Hutchings Museum. As a young boy, he would collect arrowheads and pottery shards around Utah lake. His collection grew as he got older. John Hutchings married Eunice Mary Colledge in 1913.

Project Embrace

Our Mission: “We are dedicated to increasing access to health care services for all through the provision of necessary medical resources to low-income, isolated, marginalized, or low-resource communities in the Mountain West and abroad.” Many patients in low and middle-income communities suffer from a variety of debilitating conditions, and many require urgent attention. However, due to a high volume of patients in many developing communities and a lack of healthcare accessibility, not all community members get the medical technology they need. We want to change that. By taking previously owned medical equipment to these communities, Project Embrace not only helps meet the patient's specific need but does so in an innovative way that questions what we consider to be "medical waste."

Sobriety Foundation

Substance misuse is one of the critical public health epidemics of our time. In the 2016 Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Annual Report, it showed that 134,172 adults in Utah needed treatment for drug or alcohol dependence, but the public system could only serve 13,400 individuals. Due to limited funding, we currently can only fund 23% of our applicants.

No single individual or organization can solve complex community problems alone. Real, lasting change requires that people, businesses, and systems work together to develop solutions and make a collective impact.

University Neighborhood Partners

UNP builds university-community partnerships focused on resident-identified issues and opportunities. We do not run programs. Rather, we are a convener, bringing partners to the table to share ideas, identify common goals, and create their own initiatives.

Our work is to support those partnerships by encouraging active communication, relationship building, resource sharing, and capacity building.
