The Central Arizona Shelter Services (CASS) has been working to meet the needs of those individuals who are homeless.

The organization has found that about 19 percent of those who turn to them for help are children or young adults, according to a press release. Veterans also make up a large percentage of those who rely on CASS’ services at 12 percent.

About 27,000 people experience homelessness each night in the state, according to the release.

“Most clients require guidance to end their homelessness,” CEO Mark Holleran said in the release. “Whether their barriers include serious health conditions or disabilities that inhibit their ability to gain self-sufficiency, substance abuse or a financial crisis, our programs empower our clients based on their unique needs.”

CASS uses multiple strategies and approaches, including partnerships with other organizations, to help individuals return to independence.

”Our goal is to empower our homeless clients to achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency in ending their homelessness and rebuilding their lives,” Holleran said.
