  • Mission:
  • To empower men, women and children with diverse needs to end their homelessness by providing shelter and supportive services.

  • Overview:
  • Central Arizona Shelter Services (CASS) provides emergency shelter and supportive services to nearly 6,000 unduplicated homeless men, women and children from Maricopa County, Arizona each year. We offer a 470 bed shelter in central Phoenix for men and women (in separate dormitories) and a 30 unit family shelter in north Phoenix. Supportive services are provided to help the individual/family address what may have led to their homelessness (i.e. substance abuse, lack of support system, underemployment, unemployment, lack of life skills, etc.) and return to the community. Our request for support from The Lawrence Foundation centers on our family shelter needs. This request falls within the foundation's human services focus area.

  • History:
  • CASS was incorporated in 1984 in response to the community's need for a regional shelter provider. Over the years, our programs have expanded to provide case management, housing placement services, employment resources, specialized programs for veterans and youth, childcare and a dental clinic.
