Supporting Transition from the Streets
At Family Health Centers, we believe that housing is healthcare. Our Phoenix Healthcare for the Homeless operates a peer supported, permanent housing program that helps individuals living in shelters or on the streets move into homes.
From Your Heart To Our Home is our annual fundraiser to help purchase home goods such as beds, furniture, kitchenware, and linens – everything a person might need to start a new life. Many of our participants move directly from the streets into their own apartment. The Holiday Season can be especially difficult due to financial hardship and lack of family support. With donations like yours, we are able to provide the essentials a person needs to get started in their new homes and help spread holiday cheer by giving away holiday gift cards to clients in our housing program. For many of our clients, this will be the only gift they receive.
Since 2008, Family Health Centers-Phoenix has helped more than 500 people move from the streets into apartments of their own.
