Arizona’s Homeless Youth

Safety, supplies and support make Tumbleweed Resource Centers a haven.

Tumbleweed Youth Resource Centers (YRC)

The Tumbleweed YRCs are a unique haven where homeless young people can congregate and get immediate, basic help. As youth-only facilities, YRCs are a non-threatening, safe introduction to Tumbleweed’s full range of services. The Centers offer:

  • Daily meals
  • Hygiene and health items
  • Internet and phone access
  • Laundry and shower facilities
  • Food and clothing
  • A weekly visit from the Phoenix Children’s Hospital mobile medical team for examinations and medical referrals.

Quick Fact: In a typical year, the YRCs will serve more than 24,000 meals to homeless young people in Maricopa County.
