For 15 years there have been more people seeking shelter than the HSC and its partners could shelter. For many years an overflow shelter was open. Since that had to close, the HSC has turned away approximately 500 people per month seeking shelter. We have buildings that could shelter more people which is why we have made a formal request to the City of Phoenix to approve an amendment to our special permit. We need your voice to ask the Mayor and City Council to support our request. Our next important milestone on this formal journey, the City of Phoenix Planning Commission meeting, has been moved out again to January 7th. We anticipate being on a February Council agenda. Please follow us or ‘get involved’ on the web site for updates.
