Maricopa County and Phoenix short term housing and shelter.

Maricopa County residents who are facing imminent eviction or who are currently homeless have several housing assistance programs available to them. Non-profit centers, government resources, and various agencies are committed to preventing evictions, offering affordable housing units, and sheltering the homeless.

Many of the centers have restrictions on who can use them or they may cater to a specific clientele. For example, a housing program or shelter may provide for families with children, single men, or the recently evicted. It is best to call in advance to learn about exact program terms. If one of the Maricopa County Arizona centers can't meet your need then they will refer individuals to other resources, such as federal government or state or Arizona assistance.

Also work with a case manager to find a more permanent home. Some of the other more common solutions include the section 8 voucher program. Social workers will also offer information on employment services in Phoenix and the county.
