Bridging the Gaps with a Helping Hand
Mental health and homelessness is a dual crisis in Maricopa County and across the state of Arizona. We’re committed to addressing both, filling a need where existing community programs fall short.
A Non-Profit Committed to Providing Flexible Support
D Squared Homes for the Homeless is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to filling the gaps between infrastructure and community resources. We work within the community to help the seriously mentally ill (SMI) and/or those experiencing homelessness find temporary relief when traditional services fail to meet their needs.
A Cause Born From Firsthand Experience
Founder J.T. and her family have experienced serious mental health hardships and homelessness, seeing firsthand how limiting community resources can be–often perpetuating the cycle instead of working to end it.
DSquared Homes for the Homeless
DSquared Takes A Different Approach
Founded in 2019, our organization provides a variety of transitional services designed to bring flexibility to support services those who often fall through the cracks.
Our number one goal is to prevent homelessness. This looks like:
✔ Access to transitional housing without traditional requirements.
✔ Flexible financial support to help cover rent.
✔ Education, training, involvement, awareness, and advocacy.
A Mission of Care and Compassion
We’re committed to creating a support system for the seriously mentally ill (SMI) through community collaboration. We see a need for essential care and comfort items, access to mental health professionals, and flexible support to fill the gaps where traditional programs fall short.
We seek to combat the growing homelessness problem through prevention and to end the stigmatization of those who experience homelessness through education and advocacy, bringing human compassion back into the equation.
