The Warm Springs Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed to protect the Warm Springs landmark site, preserve the Wasatch Plunge building at 840 N. Beck St., Salt Lake City, and reestablish its role as a community gathering place where people of all walks of life come together—to soak in the hot springs,  learn, heal, connect, and collaborate.

We’re a growing group of leaders, visionaries, community builders, business people, and social evolutionaries coming together with grass roots momentum to serve the whole community by connecting people, communities, place and history.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
