How to Find Help

IF YOU ARE IN A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SITUATION:

We are dedicated to promoting the safety and success of domestic violence survivors.

For Domestic Violence Shelter: Call the Domestic Violence Centralized Screening line at 480-890-3039.  This 7 days/week, 24-hour English/ Spanish bilingual resource connects people in crisis with domestic violence shelters throughout Maricopa County, including the UMOM Domestic Violence Shelter.

For Information About Domestic Violence: The Arizona Coalition Against Domestic Violence website http://www.acesdv.org/ includes information about how to know if you’re in an abusive relationship, safety planning, how to help a domestic violence victim, the Legal Advocacy Hotline, available resources and more.

IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY IN HOUSING AND ARE SEEKING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE:

Unfortunately, UMOM is unable to provide cash assistance. Please contact Community Information & Referral by dialing 211 for this type of assistance. For families with income seeking affordable housing, please access our website for more details at http://www.umom.org/learn-more/programs-services/next-step-housing/.

IF YOU ARE A VETERAN IN  NEED OF SHELTER AND/OR HOUSING:

FOR OTHER SHELTER AND HOUSING NEEDS:

UMOM offers a number of shelter and housing assistance programs for families with children under the age of 18 or in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. Regardless of needs, the first place to start in our programs is to call The Family Housing Hub at 602-595-8700.

The Family Housing Hub screens for emergency shelter at UMOM, Watkins, CASS-Vista Colina, and Salvation Army family shelters. Families will be screened for shelter and placed on the service priority list for shelter services.  When shelter is available, you will be contacted for intake.

If other resources are available, the Family Housing Hub will attempt to make appropriate referrals.

Please note that there is a waiting list for family shelter.
