Through the collaborative approach of the HSC hundreds of clients have daily access to social support services, job assistance, convenience items, behavioral health, legal services and more. Public and private partnerships have been and continue to be the backbone of our organization – our successes are a result of the cooperative and collaborative work of the many compassionate, progressive visionaries in our Valley of the Sun community.

Milestones at Human Services Campus

  • In November 2005, the HSC opened on the Human Services Campus in downtown Phoenix. A non-profit, private, government, and community collaboration that provides wrap-around services for adults experiencing homelessness, the Campus has become a national model. The HSC operates the Lodestar Day Resource Center, which since its’ inception in 2005 has been referred to as the “hub” of the Campus, housing an extensive array of human services needed to begin the transformation from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.

  • In March of 2017, with donations from the Garcia Family, the Maricopa County Industrial Development Authority (IDA), and the Thunderbirds Charities, the Brian Garcia Welcome Center was opened. In addition to honoring the life of Brian Garcia, a frequent volunteer at the campus, the Welcome Center helps clients receive services more expeditiously. The opening of the Welcome Center has allowed the HSC and the Campus to expand our capacity, meet our clients more expediently, and more effectively coordinate services to empower people to end their homelessness. The Welcome Center provides assessments for nearly 500 unduplicated clients each month. Nearly 10% of clients are diverted from homelessness via reunification with family and friends.  In addition, our Street Outreach Program aims to increase client engagements and help individuals navigate all the services available on the Campus.
