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. Read more about this initiative and our community's response in ending veteran homelessness.
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 Awards of Excellence Luncheon at the Statewide Conference on Ending Homelessness
Far too often, hard work and dedication go unrecognized. We know there are hundreds of unsung heroes working every day to help support, engage, connect, and house Arizona's vulnerable. Please help us ensure they are recognized!
Joining us Wednesday is Vu Le, blogger for Nonprofit with Balls. On Thursday, October 8th, we'll be joined in the afternoon by Dr. Jama Shelton, Forty to None Project Director and Deputy Executive Director for the True Colors Fund. The Forty to None Project refers to the fact that in America, up to 40% of youth experiencing homelessness identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. Dr. Shelton is considered to be the foremost leading authority on LGBT youth homelessness.
