PROJECT H3 VETS


A Community-Based HUD-VASH Initiative to End Chronic Homelessness Among Veterans

Our Current State: Ending Chronic Veteran Homelessness:  Ending homelessness is possible. It does not mean that no one will ever experience homelessness again. It means that when an individual or family has a housing crisis, our community has the systems and resources in place to immediately identify and support them in rapidly getting back into housing. Instances of homelessness should be rare, short-lived and non-recurring. 


 

While people experiencing homelessness absolutely struggle with poverty, domestic violence, chronic health conditions, mental health issues, and substance use, the primary reason that people become and remain homeless is their lack of safe and stable housing that they can afford.  Affordable housing is scarce in our communities.  The need far exceeds the supply, especially for those individuals and families with extremely low incomes.  

But there is a solution!  The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness and the Arizona Housing Alliance are advocating for the restoration of the state housing trust fund.  Created in 1988, the State Housing Trust Fund is a state resource devoted to addressing Arizona's housing needs.  Read more and endorse our efforts...

ANNUAL POINT IN TIME STREET COUNT

Help us better understand how many individuals and families are experiencing homelessness in our community and be better equipped to meet their needs.  Help us by volunteering for the 2015 Point-In-Time Homeless Street Count.  The 2015 Point-In-Time (PIT) Homeless Count is a one-night street count to determine the number of people experiencing homelessness in Arizona during a given point-in-time. The count includes a brief survey to identify some characteristics of people experiencing homelessness in the community. 

Our community relies on federal, state, and local funding to support a wide range of housing and services for homeless individuals and families. Communities that receive federal funding for homeless assistance from The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are required to conduct a comprehensive PIT count. In addition to fulfilling federal requirements, the PIT count helps local governments and nonprofits more effectively allocate resources necessary to meet the needs of the homeless population in the community.

Volunteers are being sought to interview homeless individuals and families, to enter data collected from the interview, or both.  You can chose which option is best for you. The statewide count in broken up into three geographic areas: Maricopa County, Pima County, and the Balance of State.  Sign up to find out more information about this "boot on the ground" volunteer experience!  Learn more...
