Heat relief at SVdP's Resource Center

Heat relief services across the Valley

SVdP's heat relief services and cooling stations will open June 1 - Sept. 30

SVdP heat relief operations will be in full swing by June 1, running through Sept. 30. SVdP is offering indoor cooling stations, ice water, snacks, hygiene kits, basic supplies, emergency food box deliveries, and rent/utility assistance to keep families out of the heat and in their homes. Heat relief operations also include an emergency overnight heat relief shelter inside SVdP's Phoenix Dining Room on the Key Campus. SVdP’s other 24/7 heat relief shelter and housing program on 28th Street and Washington is by agency referral only.

In addition to indoor heat relief locations, SVdP will also operate two water trucks this summer conducting outreach throughout the Valley focused on life saving services for those on the street who don't have access to heat relief centers. Once the temperatures begin to rise, the water trucks swing into action loading up pallets of water, water bottles, and supplies for animals in need. During the hot summer months, the water trucks will focus on specific hot spots including mobile homes, BLM and Trust Lands, etc. ensuring everyone stays hydrated and cool.

In 2023, Maricopa County recorded 645 heat-associated deaths with a significant number of whom were people experiencing homelessness. Equally concerning are families behind on bills being forced onto the streets mid-summer when the heat is life-threatening. Low-income families already face typical summer challenges with higher utility bills, increased childcare costs and limited access to school food programs.

By staying engaged and supporting SVdP's 100 Days of Summer campaign, the community can help SVdP respond to all these increased summer needs.
