Thousands of people in Arizona could face homelessness in the coming months.
The Wildfire Family Resilience Fund was launched in partnership with Phoenix Community Alliance and Vitalyst Health Foundation to provide targeted support to individuals and families facing eviction due to COVID-19 and other economic hardships.
Wildfire is a leader in providing programs and supporting others committed to ending poverty. Recently Wildfire successfully partnered with the City of Phoenix to ensure the efficient distribution of short-term rental assistance to those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
While federal support for COVID-19 related expenses will eventually end, the threat of eviction will remain. That’s where the Wildfire Family Resilience Fund steps in.
Using established technology and distribution systems, Wildfire provides financial assistance to qualifying households who apply through partner agencies. By focusing on eviction prevention, the goal is to prevent displacement and homelessness before it starts. Now more than ever, we need to provide economic security and housing stability to Arizonans in need.
