$300,000 GRANT FROM THUNDERBIRDS CHARITIES WILL SUPPORT CRITICAL CLIENT SERVICES TO HELP MOVE FROM STREET TO HOME

PHOENIX, Ariz. (Aug. 17, 2022): Thunderbirds Charities has awarded the 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 intake and assessment, housing and behavioral health navigation and housing referral. Additionally, the funding helps with diversion, which focuses on reuniting people experiencing homelessness with family or friends to prevent the need to enter the homeless services system.

“The important work our team does to move individuals experiencing homelessness from street to home cannot be done without the incredibly generous support of Thunderbirds Charities,” said HSC Executive Director Amy Schwabenlender. “This grant will directly impact the lives of so many of the men and women experiencing homelessness who we serve.”

Development Director Steve Davis added that “the long-term support of the Thunderbirds makes them true champions. We are deeply grateful.”

In Fiscal Year 2021, more than 12,000 unduplicated individuals visited the Human Services Campus, which was operating in full-time COVID mode. During that period, 3,966 individuals underwent assessments to determine their needs and 459 were diverted to friends and family, quickly and affordably helping move from street to home. Also, 4,100 individuals were served overnight in the COVID Relief Shelter and 7,991 accessed services through the campus post office.

“We are proud to once again support the amazing work of Human Services Campus,” said Michael Golding, President of Thunderbirds Charities. “The critical client services that they provide are vital for individuals who are looking for permanent housing and a pathway to success.”
