Description: Access to the Vista Colina Emergency Family Shelter is provided through the Family Housing Hub: 602-595-8700.

Vista Colina shelters homeless families in an apartment-style complex for up to 120 days. We have 12 one bedroom and 18 two bedroom units specifically for adults with children under 18. We serve approximately 700 people in the shelter each year.

At Vista Colina, each family works with their case manager to develop and implement a unique case plan to address their specific needs including employment, budgeting, savings as well as other steps toward self-sufficiency. Families must save 80% of their income for permanent housing in preparation for leaving the shelter. Working together, case managers guide clients in applying for the medical benefits and social services for which they are eligible and ensure children are enrolled in school.

The Vista Colina Emergency Family Shelter also provides food, hygiene supplies, and clothing. Our Child Development Program includes an infant nursery, an accredited preschool program, and after school activities for older children. By giving families a safe, stable and supportive environment, parents can focus on building life skills, securing income and rebuilding their lives.
