Resources in the Local Area

Our center is just 9 blocks away from the Utah County Courthouse and about a mile 1/2 away from the BYU Family History Library.  However, our parking is more accessible to our building than the parking at BYU.


Volunteer at the Center

We would love to have volunteers at our center.  It is helpful if you can speak Spanish but it is not imperative.  If you are able to serve on Saturdays or Thursdays we have shifts available immediately.
