I-HELP Emergency Shelter


At any point in time, more than 1,000 adults and children are experiencing homelessness in Tempe. Through the Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP), TCAA and a network of community and faith partners offer overnight emergency shelter for adults who are experiencing homelessness. 

If you are age 18 and older and in need of I-HELP emergency shelter services, contact us on the I-HELP Hotline at 480-389-1277. 

For over 17 years TCAA has successfully operated I-HELP. This program provides overnight sleeping space, evening meals, shower and laundry services, as well as intensive case management and resource navigation to assist up to 40 participants at a time in resolving barriers to end their period of homelessness.

Intakes are completed at IHELP Shelter - please call (480) 389-1277 to check availability.

The following resources are available during daytime operating hours for IHELP participants and extended community:
