Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Chandler, AZ

Total Budget: $3,000

Areas of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene, Community economic development

Activity Type: Health: General


The Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP) is a results-oriented program that provides emergency shelter for up to 25 adult men and women experiencing homelessness. Every night of the week a house of faith becomes a host site by providing the basic needs of safety, lodging, meals, and fellowship, while building relationships around trust.

The I-HELP concept is being implemented all over the country. The meals are provided by community groups and organizations, which may not have a free standing location. I-HELP also offers case management services to connect individuals to the vital resources needed to regain stability and break the vicious cycle of homelessness. The mobile shower unit, the "Chandler Clean Machine," provides guests with ready access to a warm shower and washers to clean their clothes.

The Chandler Horizon Rotary Club would like to provide the hot meal and brown bag lunch for the following day for up to 25 people, once a month - the first Tuesday of the month for one (1) year - Aug 2021 to Aug 2022, for a total of 12 hot meals and 12 brown bag lunches.

Thanks so much for submitting this District Grant application. Unfortunately, available DDF is insufficient to fund any club's second request this year. We hope this project can go forward with other funding.
