HSC Helps Mother and Child Reunite with Family
Barbara and her child traveled from Denver to Phoenix to be with the child’s father. Once he started to become abusive and to stalk her, she stated "I ran for my child's and my life." Thankfully she was able to find family shelter at Gift of Mary. Sister Jermenia from Gift of Mary contacted HSC for diversion assistance, in order to help Barbara reunite with family in Denver. HSC Staff confirmed that Barbara’s family in Denver would welcome her with open arms. HSC purchased bus tickets and emailed them to Gift of Mary Staff. Sister Jermenia later confirmed that they provided Barbara and her child transportation to the bus station, and that the family arrived safely in Denver. We wish them health and happiness!
Nearly 20% of people served at the Welcome Center self-report that they are experiencing a domestic violence situation. Reuniting clients with family or friends is the fastest, most economical and effective way to end their homelessness safely.

This TV series was created to continue Mike McQuaid’s mission to end homelessness here in the Valley. Mike McQuaid believed the problem could be solved, but he also knew it would take a community working together to achieve this goal. STN, in collaboration with the Human Services Campus and ASU’s Action Nexus, is working to shine a light on the challenges and, more importantly, the solutions.

In this episode, we discuss parents and little ones experiencing homelessness. UMOM is on the frontlines as the Coordinated Entry point for families needing help. Jackson Fonder, CEO of UMOM, joins us live in studio to talk about the challenges and actions underway to assist families in need.  

Carla Vargas Jasa, President and CEO from Valley Of The Sun United Way, also joins us on the main stage for a discussion on their new push to create ‘mighty change’ in our community.
