HSC Receives Grant from Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation

HSC recently received a generous grant from the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation to support Respiro, a 95-bed temporary shelter located on the Campus. The grant will be used for operational expenses at Respiro (Spanish for respite), which officially opened on March 25th last year. 

“Respiro provides an important resource for individuals experiencing homelessness to find temporary, safe shelter,” said HSC Executive Director Amy Schwabenlender. “This generous grant from the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation ensures our ability to continue our efforts to address homelessness in our neighborhood and in the City of Phoenix.”

Respiro was built to provide additional shelter for individuals living on the street in the area surrounding the Campus (7th Street to 15th Avenue and Jefferson Street to the railroad tracks) who are:

  • close to being housed and have a housing voucher but are unable to find housing due to market conditions and
  • highly vulnerable individuals experiencing significant barriers to housing. This population includes individuals of advanced age and young adults, medically vulnerable, domestic violence survivors, veterans and individuals discharged from hospitals

The Halle Foundation now serves as a statewide leader in proving philanthropic resources for organizations working in the fields of human services, health & medical, education, arts & culture, and spirituality. The Halle Foundation identifies and funds outstanding nonprofits to ensure that all people can build healthy, productive, and inspiring lives.
