“Nuestra Causa” host Maria Jesus Cervantes interviewed Tumbleweed’s Ken Lynch about the Tumbleweed partnership with Chicanos Por La Causa that is creating a new 44-bed facility for young people transitioning from homelessness or foster care.
Ms. Cervantes also talked with Tumbleweed client Eric Robles about his journey toward stability following years of teen homelessness.
The “Nuestra Causa” program aired on KTVK Channel 3 June 14.
Tumbleweed and CPLC partnered to provide neighborhood stabilization and community housing when CPLC purchased and renovated the Starlight Apartments at 2234 E. Hazelwood in Phoenix. Tumbleweed has furnished most of the apartments and will assist many residents toward self-sufficient adulthood. Tumbleweed staff will be on the premises monitoring progress as younger tenants learn how to balance work, school and self care in an independent setting.
The groups held a joint ribbon cutting ceremony June 2.
