Approximately 5,000-6,000 homeless men, women and children live in shelters, cars, unsafe buildings or on the streets in Maricopa County. (2017 Point In Time Count)
In November 2005, an unprecedented solution to this valley-wide problem took shape as the Human Services Campus (Campus) opened its doors to homeless individuals.
This collaboration of faith-based, non-profit, government, private, and community organizations has come together to form what is now considered a national model. The founding Campus agencies, Central Arizona Shelter Services, Maricopa County Health Care for the Homeless, St. Joseph the Worker, and St. Vincent de Paul, share a combined history of over 100 years of service to homeless individuals in our community. By combining their efforts, they are now better able to serve a truly vulnerable community who all too often remain hidden in our society and whose chronic needs are often unmet.
The Human Services Campus mission is to use the power of collaboration to provide
solutions to end homelessness. Our vision is our community without homelessness and our legacy is a model for collaborative community solutions.
