Southwest Behavioral Health Service’s Homeless Outreach, a non-profit program to help homeless individuals with mental illness, is requesting donations of hot weather supplies. This is not a traditional shelter or food bank but a mobile program that delivers supplies to the homeless where they live on the streets, in alleyways, riverbeds, parks and near deserted buildings. On scheduled days they visit soup kitchens, pocket shelters and transport homeless to mental health and substance abuse screenings. Items that SBH’s Homeless Outreach is requesting include water, sunscreen, hats or caps, lip balm, hygiene kits, shoes, socks underwear and lightweight T-shirts.

Supply donations can be dropped off at the front office of Southwest Behavioral Health, 3450 N. Third St. in downtown Phoenix, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call (602) 265-8338 for more information. Items can also be dropped off at SBH’s Homeless Outreach offices at the Day Resource Center, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, 1125 W. Jackson, Suite 448, Phoenix. Contact them at (602) 393-9930, ext. 3444, or (602) 525-4264 (mobile). It is recommended to call before making any drop-offs to the Day Resource Center. Monetary donations are also welcomed.
