The Greyhound Family Shelter is one of the only family shelters in Southern Arizona that keeps families together. It’s a safe place where families can stay as they work to get into permanent or affordable housing. Households can stay in shelter up to 90 days.
You are eligible for a stay at the Greyhound Family Shelter if you:
    Have physical and legal custody of the children who would be with you at the shelter
    Have the ability to obtain work or mainstream benefits (SSDI/SSI)
    Are homeless, having no other place to stay (currently living in a car, on the streets, in a motel, etc.)
    Have ID for each member of your family (picture ID for the adults in the family and birth certificates for all children)
