Emergency Shelter is an Essential Service


Dear UMOM Family,

Earlier this week, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey made an executive order regarding essential service providers in the community. Gov. Ducey outlined these services to include “Human service operations, including those that provide services for the elderly, those with developmental disabilities, foster and adoption children, and the homeless.” This means we are still doing intakes for families and individuals with a focus on our mission of ending homelessness.

Our emergency shelters are open and operating as we continue learning how to live our day-to-day lives amidst COVID-19. We are pushing forward with our goal of ending homelessness by keeping our community members safe, healthy, and off the streets. 


More than 800 family members, single women, and youth need your support now, more than ever. We’re asking for your assistance during this unprecedented time of need. Below is a list of items that we need right now:


1. Toilet paper

2. Diapers

3. Clorox/ Lysol disinfectant products

4. No-touch thermometers

5. Hand soap and hand sanitizer

You can drive by and drop off these donations at our main campus between 8 AM – 5 PM. Alternatively, you can support these families, women, and youth, by making a virtual purchase on Amazon, WalmartTargetCostco, or wherever you shop. You can also make donations online. We’re so grateful for your support toward ending homelessness today, and always. None of this would be possible without you. 

Our community relies on your compassion; thank you.

With gratitude,

Darlene Newsom, Chief Executive Officer
