What We Do

PROVIDING PATHWAYS OUT OF POVERTY

Isolation. Distress. Confusion. Embarrassment. We recognize and understand the stress and anxiety that poverty, homelessness, and/or fear of homelessness can cause you and your family. We are here to listen, counsel and assist you when you are in crisis, provide the relevant support, guidance and resources to help you develop a viable plan for the future, and offer you the opportunity to develop your skills and assets, set realistic goals, and work toward achieving long-term financial stability. 

Each year, our programs impact more than 8,200 individuals and families living in Southern Arizona. For many men, women, and families who are homeless, the first step to getting off the streets is connecting with us. Through partnerships with volunteers, neighborhoods, and a wide variety of community-based organizations, businesses, and public entities; we offer four areas of support:

  • SURVIVAL
  • STABILITY
  • SECURITY
  • SUSTAINABILITY

SURVIVAL

Individuals and families may find immediate relief and shelter as they recover from economic crisis through our emergency services. These programs often serve as the first stepping-stone out of poverty, assisting people as they recover from economic crisis to acquire the information and skills needed to live independently and offset future crises.
