Homeless Court
The Maricopa County Regional Homeless Court, located in the Lodestar Day Resource Center, was established to resolve outstanding misdemeanor warrants for individuals demonstrating a commitment to ending their homelessness. Individuals who owe fines for victimless crimes such as “camping” can use their time in transitional programs as community service in exchange for having their fines waived. Very often it is this burden that can keep an individual unhoused. After their fines have been waived they can start fresh on their path to self-sufficiency. 

While the pandemic has prevented Homeless Court from being in-person, clients continue to utilize this service remotely. For example, when HSC staff called "J" to inform her that her cases were resolved, she began crying, and stated that she also had just moved into her own place. She was trying to figure out the challenge of child care; now having the ability to get her driver’s license will make their lives much easier. It allows J to take a job that she didn't think would work out if she had to take public transportation. 

HSC is grateful for our partnership with Maricopa County in this effort that transforms lives.
Keep it Cut, a subscription based hair salon with eight locations throughout the Valley, has partnered with the HSC to support our efforts to end homelessness in our community.
