Providing families a safe and supportive environment on their journey to self-sufficiency
The Salvation Army Phoenix Emergency Family Shelter alleviates the financial problems many struggling, lower-income working families encounter. The shelter provides families a safe and supportive environment to overcome their plight.
For up to 120 days, the shelter provides meals and basic material needs a family might have. Families work closely with a case manager to maximize their time in the shelter. Case managers empower and encourage residents to access community, mainstream and employment resources to increase household income. They promote basic financial literacy and household budgeting and also assist residents in locating permanent housing opportunities the family can maintain once they leave the shelter.
The shelter is also the future home of the Mike Michaels Activity Center, designed to restore normalcy to families by providing opportunities for them to learn and heal through play.
