Project Connect Focuses on Unsheltered

People Living Near the Campus

On Tuesday, August 30, nearly 30 community volunteers helped HSC and partners mobilize in an effort to serve 250 unsheltered individuals living on the streets near the Campus. The goal of this Project Connect event was to provide life-changing services for the largest number of unhoused people ever living in the Campus neighborhood. Partners collaborated to address the numerous barriers people face when trying to end their homelessness. Services included: showers, hygiene items, haircuts, bike repair, identification services, mental health care, Social Security assistance, emergency shelter, pet care, and more.

Participating partners in Tuesday's event included Andre House, Central Arizona Shelter Services, Chaplaincy for the Homeless, Circle the City, Community Bridges, Homeless ID Project, St. Joseph the Worker, St. Vincent de Paul, AZ Dept. of Transportation/Motor Vehicles, Basic Mission, Mercy Care, Phoenix House Recovery, TC Mobile Solutions, AZ Pet Project and Kiip Document Storage.


And a big thank you to Valley of the Sun United Way, Onsemi, Senator Sinema’s Office, Life Startup Essentials, United Healthcare, and Run4Project for their volunteer support!

We are also very grateful for the media coverage by Channel 12, Univision, and Cronkite News to continue to bring awareness in our community about the causes of the recent spike in homelessness as well as the collaborative solutions by Campus partners who continue to help people move from street to home every day.
