housing for women:
friends campaign

One of the greatest identified needs in our community is providing more emergency and transitional housing for women. 

For this reason, we are honored to announce a new campaign that calls on community-wide support, the Friends Campaign. It only takes a one-time $10 contribution and identifying 10 friends to also give a one-time $10 contribution. The funds will be used to increase our women’s emergency and transitional housing capacity by 20 units. 

This campaign was born out of the mismatch between inadequate number of beds needed to house unsheltered women and data indicating an increase in the number of aging women experiencing homelessness. In addition, for some, it is their first occurrence of homelessness, requiring additional supportive services.

According to the Point-in-Time (PIT) Count conducted on January 24, 2023 by the Tucson Pima Collaboration to End Homelessness (TPCH):

  • 1 in 5 people were 55 years of age or older
  • 67% percent of persons ages 55-64 years old were homeless and unsheltered
  • 483 women were in emergency shelter, transitional housing, safe haven or unsheltered
  • More than 67% of the women were unsheltered

In our women’s shelter, Casa Paloma, this last fiscal year: 

  • 80% of the women were 55 years or older 
  • The oldest identified participant in the women’s hospitality center (respite and day shelter) was 86 years old.
