Homelessness in Maricopa County is on the rise. Each situation is different, and there isn’t just one solution.
Sometimes, just a single moment a person was unprepared for changes their whole world. While we want to help people who are currently experiencing homelessness, we need to prevent homelessness, too.
We work to help people at 2 levels, people currently experiencing homelessness and people who are nearly homeless. Shelters offer a case manager who can help individuals find the resources to move out of emergency shelter and into a better housing situation. Many people who enter an emergency shelter end their own homelessness within a few days. We also provide assistance before a shelter is needed by getting people in touch with family or providing short-term support to keep them in their home by eliminating situations that may leave them at risk of losing their current housing, such as paying a utility bill.
