Veteran Homelessness in Phoenix, Arizona

Gabriel was a veteran who lived on the streets for eight years, before he moved into Valley of the Sun United Way’s Permanent Supportive Housing program in Tempe, Arizona. Together with the City of Phoenix and other partners, United Way has completely ended chronic homelessness for veterans in Phoenix.

Now Gabriel has a new job working as a chef at a local restaurant, a place to call his own, and a message of hope: “Don’t be ashamed. There are people out here who want to help you.”
