About UMOM

UMOM New Day Centers mission is to prevent and end homelessness with innovative strategies and housing solutions that meet the unique needs of each family and individual. 

Founded in 1964, UMOM is the largest shelter for homeless families in Phoenix, Arizona. We keep families together, we provide a continuum of care from emergency shelter to transitional housing and finally, permanent, affordable housing. Families at UMOM have the opportunity to gain the skills, medical care, quality child care, and education they need to rebuild their lives and succeed when they leave.

“I’m just glad we have shelter and my family can stay together. There is a roof over my children’s heads.”
