Help with Housing for Homeless Individual and Families

There are a variety of reasons why a person might experience homelessness, including loss of employment, disability, domestic violence, substance use, or a combination of these factors. Catholic Charities has programs throughout Northern Arizona to help those experiencing homelessness find safe, stable, affordable housing. 

*Note: Some services may not be available in all counties or cities.

Homeless Helpline | Service Through Coordinated Entry 

Coordinated Entry is the required starting point for those experiencing homelessness in Northern Arizona to receive assistance. It is an interview and referral process that determines eligibility and access to the most appropriate housing assistance programs available. Interviews are usually conducted in person but may be conducted over the phone upon special request. 

If you or your family is experiencing homelessness, check below to see Coordinated Entry contact information for your county or city:

Homeless Assistance Program Eligibility

Once a Coordinated Entry intake has been completed, Catholic Charities will determine which of the following program(s) each individual or family is eligible for:

Permanent Supportive Housing

Catholic Charities Homeless Services provides Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) services to those who are chronically homeless. This includes individuals with disabilities and families in which at least one parent has a diagnosed substance use disorder or disability. 

Those in the program pay no more than 30% of their gross monthly income in rent and are able to live in PSH housing for as long as they need to. Case managers meet with clients on an as-needed basis and provide resources, tools and referrals. See more information about the Permanent Supportive Housing program.
