TEMPE COMMUNITY ACTION AGENCY INC

I have been working with IHELP, an outreach to the homeless in Tempe Arizona, for over 4 years. TCAA oversees this wonderful organization and reaches out to the poorest of the poor in our community providing valuable resources to get and keep people off the streets.

I am involved with IHELP through TCAA. I am one of the core team members at my church coordinating the hosting and facilitating of IHELP guests on our campus by providing shelter, a meal, fellowship, community and a lunch for the next day. This has been an incredible experience for the membership of our church and it has all been made possible because of the management, direction and coordination of TCAA. They are visionary, selfless, hard-working and dedicated to making life easier and helping those who struggle find their way back onto their feet.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I love to see what happens with our volunteers when they come and serve then sit down to eat with our guests. They hear their stories, share their lives. They bring their children and their lives are impacted.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have more access to grant writers to increase their funding and exposure. What they do is having an incredible impact on our community (consider the homeless man in Tempe who found and returned the laptop and $3300 - he is from IHELP). I'd love to see more opportunities for volunteer staff to possibly hire and train more of our guests
