In the great state of Arizona, and even near sunny Phoenix, there’s always work to be done. Those in need are often able to find help at places all around the valley, but there’s always something more we can do. Here are a few charities you can support in Phoenix that make it easy to give back and help however you can!
Society of St Vincent de Paul — Ozanam Manor
320 W Watkins Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85003
This group offers a safe, nurturing environment for homeless men and women whose needs are met as they take on opportunities to transition from homelessness to another, more permanent housing situation — and resources to stay out of homelessness for good.
2600 E Elwood St, Phoenix, AZ 85040
This animal rescue focuses not only on rehabilitating wildlife (not pets, which are helped by other organizations in the area), but also on educating people on why these animals are an important part of the world we live in. Their work helps the Arizona wilderness stay beautiful and full of life.
Phoenix Rescue Mission
1801 S 35th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85009
The mission is another locale where homeless people can come to find life-changing resources as well as a warm meal to kick away the hunger pains. Donations at the Phoenix Rescue Mission can also help bring the food bank stores to higher levels to aid more hungry families throughout the area.
Friends For Life Animal Rescue
952 W Melody Ave, Gilbert, AZ 85233
This amazing pet shelter (yes, pets!) is dedicated to increasing the number of household pets that are brought home from adoption centers, and to allowing pets of all shapes and sizes the opportunity of a new home with a new friend for life.
Homeless I.D. Project
206 S 12th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85007
This rehabilitation program focuses on a key element of homelessness for many people — the ability to get documentation. Homeless I.D. Project aids thousands of homeless individuals each year in getting an I.D. so that they can live life with the things often taken for granted by others.
