Heat relief services across the Valley
SVdP heat relief operations have already begun in some locations and will be in full swing by June 1, running through Sept. 30. SVdP is offering indoor cooling stations, ice water, snacks, emergency food box deliveries, and rent/utility assistance to keep families out of the heat and in their homes. Heat relief operations also include an emergency overnight heat relief shelter inside SVdP's Phoenix Dining Room on the Human Services Campus. SVdP’s other 24/7 heat relief shelter and housing program on 28th Street and Washington is by agency referral only.

In 2022, Maricopa County recorded 425 heat-associated deaths with a significant number of whom were people experiencing homelessness. Equally concerning are families behind on bills being forced onto the streets mid-summer when the heat is life-threatening. Low-income families already face typical summer challenges with higher utility bills, increased childcare costs and limited access to school food programs.
By staying engaged and supporting SVdP's 100 Days of Summer campaign, the community can help SVdP respond to all these increased summer needs.
