Homeless people, who are especially vulnerable during this Coronavirus pandemic, will receive more support thanks to a donation from the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.
The foundation recently provided $100,000 to the Human Services Campus, Inc. for COVID-19 relief. This money will be used to buy personal protective equipment for Human Services Campus employees and other partner organizations’ staff members, as well as to increase cleaning supplies and services, expand staffing, boost security and offer heat relief, among other needs. The Human Services Campus is running under strict health and safety measures that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has established and is following county health officials’ guidelines.
Started in 2005, the Human Services Campus is a collaborative effort of partner organizations on one campus that aims to end homelessness. There are 16 independent agencies on the campus that assist almost 1,000 people every day, providing holistic services including reunification with family members and friends, shelter, meals, housing, as well as physical, mental and dental health programs.
