MIKE McQUAID I AM HOME BREAKFAST RAISES $1 MILLION FOR HUMAN SERVICES CAMPUS (NOW KNOWN AS KEYS TO CHANGE)

PHOENIX, Ariz. (Jan.15, 2024): Nearly 700 people attending the 19th annual Mike McQuaid I Am Home Breakfast along with over 40 event sponsors and donors from across Arizona helped raise $1 million for Human Services Campus, Inc., which changed its name to Keys to Change at the start of this year.

With a few additional donations still expected to come in over the next few weeks, the event raised funds to provide services and resources to adult men and women experiencing homelessness. Signature Sponsor Avondale Toyota supported the effort with both its sponsorship and a $250,000 match to funds raised during the December 15 event at the Arizona Biltmore.

“The show of support from those who attended as well as from sponsors and other donors was overwhelming both financially and personally four our entire team as we continue to focus on helping unsheltered men and women find permanent housing,” said Keys to Change CEO Amy Schwabenlender. “We are incredibly grateful.”

Co-hosted by Schwabenlender and Arizona Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall, the 90-minute event featured several moving videos about the collaborative work of the organization and its partners, those who are served and staff members who are “on the frontlines of our work every day of the year,” Schwabenlender said. One of the videos featured Keys to Change Outreach Navigator Nette Reed, who leverages her own homelessness experience, with her four children, in her daily outreach to unsheltered men and women living on the streets in downtown Phoenix.

“Nette is an inspiration to us all, and most importantly, she is considered a friend and important resource to the people she sees and works with to help them move into shelter and housing every day,” Schwabenlender said.

At the event, Schwabenlender announced that after a year-long rebranding effort, the name of the 13-acre campus in downtown Phoenix would change to Key Campus and the name of the 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides critical client services and owns and and manages the campus would change from Human Services Campus, Inc. to Keys to Change.

“The new names enable us to better distinguish the organization from the campus location as well as to better reflect our organizational goals which extend beyond operating the campus to creating systemic changes with a focus on prevention, keeping people in their homes, diverting individuals from the homelessness system, and advocating for more affordable housing” she said.

The tagline for Keys to Change is Working Together. Ending Homelessness.  The tagline for Key Campus is Unlocking The Way Home.

In the coming months, the organization’s website and other materials will reflect the changes.

Details about the 2024 Mike McQuaid I Am Home Breakfast will be announced in the coming months.
