Did you know that individuals 55 and older are the fastest growing population of homeless? One answer for homeless seniors in the Phoenix area is the Justa Center. The Justa Center is a day resource center designed to help those over the age of 55 find housing, employment, and other needed services. The staff and volunteers are there to reassure, assist, and problem solve with the homeless individual until he or she is able to be self sufficient. The Justa Center is not a shelter, but a place where seniors can find the resources they need to get back on track. About 100 seniors a day seek help at the Justa Center and since it opened in 2006, it has helped approximately one person a day get out of homelessness.
If you know someone who could benefit from this service, or for more information please contact Scott Ritchey.
