Casa Grande Homeless Resource Center


Direct services for CGHELPS Homeless Resource Center would be provided by the various agencies, while the Resource Center would act as a central registration and screening location, providing case management and connecting people to resources. Resource agencies invited to provide services at the Center include:
  • Community Action Human Resources Agency (CAHRA)
  • Arizona@Work
  • Goodwill
  • Salvation Army
  • Sun Life Family Health Center (SLFHC)
  • Department of Economic Security
  • Family Assistance (Food Stamps, Benefits)

The Center is staffed by CAHRA, including a Coordinator, a support staff person, and direct service providers/case managers. Volunteers will also provide services, including receptionist and a navigator. 

The ability to provide nursing examinations would provide the ultimate service necessary for these homeless individuals. To be able to identify their health issues and refer to other medical services would help their road to self reliance possibly they will be able to obtain a home, a job and eventually improved health.   

Community Action Human Resources Agency (CAHRA) is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit designated as the Community Action Agency providing services to low income individuals and families throughout Pinal County. CAHRA has been identified as the lead agency in the operation of a Homeless Resource Center. The Center will be a place where homeless or those on the brink of homelessness will be able to speak with representatives and obtain services such as obtaining identification needed to qualify for services including training or obtaining a job.
The Resource Center is a part of one of the initial goals identified in the strategic plan of the Casa Grande Mayor’s Task Force on Homelessness (MTFH).
