Arizona’s scorching summers are one of the biggest dangers our homeless clients face every year. Last year, 425 Arizonans died from heat-related causes.
This is a record number of deaths.
By providing heat relief resources to those experiencing homelessness, you are able to help keep our clients safe, allowing them to focus on obtaining and keeping employment.
St. Joseph the Worker (SJW) is collecting monetary donations through the end of September to purchase water and heat-relief resources.
When a job-seeker lacks these basic essentials, they are not employable. We need support from the community in order to provide these critical items.
