Yearly Safe Overnights
Each year, we provide over 13,000 safe, overnight stays to Tucson homeless women who would otherwise sleep outdoors.
To Our Volunteers and Those Considering Volunteering
Your compassion for women experiencing homelessness here in Tucson during this health crisis is profound and for that we are grateful. We thank you for your concern and for considering how you may best support these resilient yet vulnerable women. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, our agency is currently sheltering-in-place and most of our Volunteers are remaining at home at this time to ensure the safety of our Overnight Guests who will be staying within our Center.
Current Volunteers: If you are a current volunteer and interested in volunteering in our kitchen, which is located within the Center but away from the Guests contact Laura Lynn, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (520) 909-3905.
New Volunteers: If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Volunteer please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Laura Lynn, at email@example.com or (520) 909-3905. Once this crisis has passed, we will need additional help providing services to this vulnerable population.
We Love Our Amazing Volunteers!
