Pacia Life had it’s informal beginnings in 2007 in Salt Lake City when a group of young adults wanted help to re-create their lives. Today, this same group of young adults now have college educations, started their own business, are dedicated to living the 80/20 rule and still engage with business and life coaches. From this first location, the request to add additional resources and locations has grown over time. Today, Pacia Life Salt Lake City students sign their own housing contracts and choose to live in a number of homes and apartments throughout the Salt Lake City metropolitan area.
