Programs & Services
Reframe mental health by minimizing the stigma that creates barriers to housing and employment.
Transitional Housing Progam
Transitional Housing can help stabilize people with mental health issues and substance use disorders who are experiencing homelessness. Housing programs can help address the root causes of homelessness through various essential recovery support services, including mental and substance use disorder treatment, employment, and mainstream benefits.
Providing permanent supportive housing on a housing-first basis—without requiring transitional steps or demonstrated sobriety—is effective for people experiencing chronic homelessness. People with a serious mental illness, substance use disorder, or co-occurring mental and substance use disorder have demonstrated similar or better housing stability and substance use compared to those placed in housing with pre-requisites.
The GAP Program provides financial assistance to homeless individuals seeking shelter by covering critical costs. The GAP program also provides temporary rent relief assistance by covering rent costs when an independent living Serious Mentally Ill (SMI) individual is experiencing a setback.
Volunteen Dignity Bag Program
Through the Volunteen Dignity Bag Program, youth and teens of Maricopa County fundraise and distribute Dignity Bags to the local homeless population, with the objective of instilling philanthropic values in young generations.
The Plarn Team crochets homeless sleeping mats out of plastic bags. We need educational institutions and other groups to partner with us and create homeless sleeping mats from a weaving loom, which we will provide! This is a great community service project!
