Thanks to the Arizona Tax Credit, you can give up to $400 of your contribution to a qualifying charitable organization, like Flagstaff Shelter Services, and get it all back next year.
Flagstaff Shelter Services Needs You Now
If you’re reading this, chances are you already know a little bit about our mission to end homelessness in Flagstaff.
And while we’re still passionate about moving people out of homelessness, right now, we’re all just trying to survive the COVID-19 pandemic.
You see, we’re the last stop. We’re the end of the road for many, who for one reason or another, have no where to go. We turn no one away, regardless of faith, mental health, sobriety – or COVID-19.
It hasn’t been easy. Our emergency shelter is at full capacity all day, every day, helping those without a home, shelter-in-place. We’re practicing social distancing here, which is a challenge within itself.
Our clients are among the most vulnerable in the region, and highly susceptible to the virus that is spreading. So, as reports of COVID-19 cases rise in Flagstaff, we see more and more people showing up with symptoms.
We’re screening everyone who comes to us and have found a safe place for COVID-19 positive patients to recover and receive tele-health medical visits.
We’re doing everything we can to keep our clients – and the rest of the community – safe from the pandemic’s reach.
It’s not perfect. It’s hard and as terrifying as you might imagine. But we don’t give up. We don’t know how.
What we do know is that we can’t go on like this forever. While the second story we added to our shelter last year has made it possible for us to help more people, we’re low on reserves. We were hoping to replenish our operations funding with our Feast for Flagstaff fundraiser next month, but like every event on the books, it has been postponed.
We’re calling for a lifeline, Flagstaff. If you’ve thought about how you can help your neighbors get through this, we need you now more than ever.
