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.
“Our team cannot do the important work they do every day without the incredibly generous support of Thunderbirds Charities,” said HSC CEO Amy Schwabenlender. “We are extremely grateful that Thunderbirds Charities continues to be one of our most consistent community partners.”
In Fiscal Year 2023, more than 12,000 unduplicated individuals visited the Human Services Campus. During that period, nearly 9,000 individuals underwent assessments to determine their needs and 830 were diverted to friends and family, quickly and affordably helping move from street to home.
“Human Services Campus is doing invaluable work in our community,” said Pat Williams, President of Thunderbirds Charities. “As we watch the significant growth in our unsheltered population, we are immensely grateful that we have organizations like HSC providing important support and truly making a difference in the lives of this vulnerable population.”
This grant is part of the Spring 2023 cycle. View a list of all Recent Grantees.
