Downtown Phoenix’s Tumbleweed Drop in Center
[Source: Tumbleweed Theater Project]
Think you know the story on homeless youth? Did you know there are over 1,000 youth without homes every night in Phoenix alone? For the past five years, ASU and Tumbleweed have been collaborating on arts projects ranging from digital storytelling to haunted houses to original theatre productions. Sponsored by Artswork, Place, Vision, Voice and the Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development.
The Tumbleweed Drop in Center in downtown Phoenix, AZ provides basic needs and services for homeless and at risk youth in the Phoenix community. In addition to basic services, a partnership with community based artists at Arizona State University brings a wide variety of arts programming into the center. If you are a young person between the ages of 18 and 24 in Phoenix, interested in receiving services through the DIC, you can find us at 902 N. 5th Street, Phoenix AZ 85004 or call for more information at (602) 462-5611.
If you are interested in more information about the arts programming that happens in the center, please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
