Total Budget: $4,300

Areas of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene, Maternal and child health, Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Community Development: General

Summary: Basic living supplies provided to homeless families enrolled at Save the Family, a local non profit organization.

Save the Family is a non profit organization located in Mesa, Arizona. Their mission is to provide temporary housing and education to over 700 homeless families each year. Many of the families arrive at STF without basic living essentials e.g., bedding, towels, cooking utensils, dinner ware, etc. The Rotary Club of Fountain Hills will, in collaboration with the STF staff, use the Grant Funds to purchase and deliver needed supplies to approximately 50 of the incoming families. The process works as follows: When a new family is being placed in their custody, STF will assess their immediate needs and advise our Rotary Club. Club volunteers will then purchase the items using Grant funds and deliver them as directed. Approximately 6 - 8 Rotarians will participate until the funds are exhausted. This process usually takes 3 - 6 months.
