GoFundMe Donation Drive is a Holiday Gift from the Heart for Those in Need
Family Health Centers’ Phoenix Health Care for the Homeless location at 712 East Muhammad Ali Boulevard is committed to eliminating homelessness, one person at a time. The facility provides Permanent Supportive Housing to 150 formerly homeless individuals, many of whom moved directly from the streets into their apartments.
Each year its needs become more significant as the number of individuals in the Phoenix housing program continues to grow, and FHC relies on donors from the public sector to best serve its clients. For this holiday 2022 season, when so many are in need, Family Health Centers has created a GoFundMe campaign, ‘Help Make a Home,’ with a donation goal of $5,000. Donations to Phoenix’s ‘Help Make a Home’ campaign will support purchasing essential home goods for persons who are homeless or in shelters.
Melissa Noyes Mather, MPH, and FHC Chief Communications Officer, explained, “These donations provide essential items for those at our Phoenix location to begin an important new chapter in their lives, in a home that the public is helping to create by way of donations. The end goal of this initiative is to help improve the housing situation by purchasing furniture, cookware, linens, and all the things one needs to start a new chapter in their life.”
