The mission of Save the Family is to equip families to address poverty, overcome homelessness, and achieve self-sufficiency. Providing over 204 units of housing within the valley, Save the Family also offers transitional housing for homeless families and working poor families to get them stable through market adjusted rents.
60% of members are children and Save the Family strives to create stability through consistent housing, schooling, after school programs, tutoring, and extracurricular activities. Save the Family does this by offering a variety of programs that are designed to empower families to conquer homelessness and achieve life long independence. Through targeted services that align with the goals and strategies set by Valley of the Sun United Way and the Maricopa Association of Government’s Continuum of Care, families at Save the Family end the damaging effects of family homelessness by:
improving their education and employment opportunities,
accessing safe, permanent housing, and
building family competencies.
Early on, Save the Family recognized that families need more than safe housing to conquer homelessness. They also need skills and confidence to lead productive, self-sufficient lives. Today, we offer an array of programs for adults, youth, and children, including:
parenting skills, personal development classes, and support for victims of domestic violence
career development, literacy support, and financial education
dental, vision, and legal services
tutoring, after-school classes, and camps and activities for youth
