UMOM New Day Centers
For families, including families of military veterans

On the UMOM New Day Centers campus, each family lives in a private room. Case managers guide families as they create an individual housing plan – their unique strategy to confront and overcome the challenges that led to experiencing homelessness. Tools and resources, such as the New Day Employment Center, job readiness courses, and an onsite childcare development center, aid clients in finding and keeping a job. A licensed wellness clinic, also on-campus, helps kids and young adults stay healthy and in school.
Halle Women’s Center
For single women without children

Opened in June 2017, the Halle Women’s Center is the first Arizona shelter designed specifically for single women. Before Halle, women experiencing homelessness had a cot on the floor of a multipurpose room with more than 100 other women. Now, two or three women share a room with a private bathroom.

Before Halle, women received only two meals a day and had to leave the shelter during the day. Now, nutritious meals are served three times a day. Daytime hours are available for work with case managers to gain skills, find jobs, solve problems, and identify a path to permanent housing.

Open Hands Emergency Crisis Shelter
For youth ages 12-17

This six-bed residential emergency shelter in Phoenix provides a safe, home-like setting for youth experiencing homelessness, family conflict, or abuse.

Open Hands offers individual and family counseling with the goal of family reunification. Youth who aren’t able to safely return home may stay for a longer term; learning life skills and receiving workforce and job readiness training.

Approximately 200 youth are served each year through Open Hands. Nearly all who complete the program exit to safe, permanent housing.

Youth Shelters: The Transitional Independent Living Program
For teens and young adults, ages 16 – 21

Often, teens experience homeless because they are:

    Escaping violence
    Suffering due to substance abuse of their own or by a parent
    Rejected because of gender identity
    Aging out of the foster care system.

UMOM's Youth Program at Earll provides hope and a safe place to stay. Youth work with case managers and counselors to regain a sense of safety, finish high school, look for a job, learn how to use public transportation, and more. Perhaps most significantly, they are able to meet other young people, make friends, and have fun – something that they may not have experienced otherwise.

Youth Resource Center and Street Outreach Engagement Team
For youth ages 18 – 24

Free supportive services are available for young adults who are experiencing homelessness. Services include: food, water, showers, hygiene and personal care items, and clothing. Case management, housing navigation, as well as the coordinated entry point for HUD housing programs such as Rapid Rehousing and Permanent Supportive Housing are also available at the Youth Resource Center.

The center is located at Tempe First United Methodist Church, 215 E. University Drive, Tempe, AZ 85281.

Hours: Monday - Friday, 12:00 pm – 3:30 pm, Phone: 480-868-7527.
