Thunderbirds Charities has awarded Human Services Campus (HSC, Inc.) a $300,000 grant to support, enhance and expand critical client services designed to assist individuals experiencing homelessness to move from street to home. Funding will be used for programs including street outreach, intake and assessment, housing and behavioral health navigation, housing referral, post office services, reunification with family/friends, and more.
“Our team cannot do the important work they do every day without the incredibly generous support of Thunderbirds Charities,” said HSC CEO Amy Schwabenlender. “We are extremely grateful that Thunderbirds Charities continues to be one of our most consistent community partners.”
In Fiscal Year 2023, nearly 14,000 unduplicated individuals visited the Human Services Campus. During that period, over 9,000 individuals completed assessments to determine their needs. 830 people were reunified with friends and family, quickly and affordably moving from street to home. Over 2,000 people were ultimately connected to permanent housing.
“HSC is doing invaluable work in our community,” said Pat Williams, President of Thunderbirds Charities. “As we watch the significant growth in our unsheltered population, we are immensely grateful that we have organizations like HSC providing important support and truly making a difference in the lives of this vulnerable population.”
Big Thanks to Thunderbirds Charities!
