Watkins Basic Needs Shelter

This unique, year-round program is designed specifically to serve up to 120 homeless single women as well as up to 20 families every night. As a result of this critical program, we are able to provide the most vulnerable with a warm, safe place to sleep and a healthy meal.


The City of Phoenix assists with case management and other supportive services for families. UMOM continues to manage and operate this program which receives additional support, both volunteer and financial, from many faith-based and community organizations.
