The Human Services Campus announced it will invest the funds from a $200,000 Thunderbirds Charities grant to enhance and expand its services to end homelessness.
Funding will go toward programs including intake and assessment, housing, housing referral and behavioral health navigation. The funding will also help with diversion, which focuses on reuniting homeless individuals with family or friends so they don’t enter the homeless services system.
“We are incredibly grateful for the generous $200,000 grant from Thunderbirds Charities because we know it will directly impact the lives of so many of the men and women experiencing homelessness who are served on the campus,” said HSC Executive Director Amy Schwabenlender in a prepared statement.
The HSC is a non-profit campus located near downtown Phoenix filled with partner agencies dedicated to serving the homeless.
HSC Development Director Steve Davis added that “the long-term support of the Thunderbirds makes them true champions. And, their additional support during the pandemic has been extremely helpful in allowing us to continue providing uninterrupted services to our clients every day.”
In 2020, the Human Services Campus served 6,600 individuals experiencing homelessness, placing more than 700 into permanent housing and diverting more than 500 men and women from becoming homeless.
“We’re honored to support these critical client services,” said Scott Jenkins, President of Thunderbirds Charities. “Together, we can help this vulnerable population with the first steps towards ending their homelessness and rebuilding their lives.”
