Shelter and Weather Relief

At SVdP we have a long-term transitional shelter for adults with disabilities, veterans and seniors experiencing homelessness. We have a pocket shelter for individuals living near Washington St. in Downtown Phoenix who are interested in getting back into permanent housing. We also have temporary summer heat relief shelters around the Valley.

Transitional shelter for older adults

Call the phone number listed to begin the pre-screening process. Then you will have to come in for a second, face-to-face interview with a case manager to ensure that you would be a good fit for the program. There is no cost if you don't have any income otherwise the cost is 30% of income for residents. Veterans should work through the VA to enter the program. While in the program, a dedicated case manager will work with you to make sure you have all your paperwork in order and help you find an affordable place to live.


50+, veteran, adult with disability

Locations for transitional shelter for older adults

Neighborhood Pocket Shelter

Entry to the shelter is by referral only. There are no walk-up services. There are 200 beds available. Once a resident enters the program the bed/space is theirs until they are able to find more permanent shelter. The shelter offers wrap-around case management to help individuals experiencing homelessness resolve their barriers to finding housing and is open with security 24/7.


By referral from community partners
