Phoenix homeless advocates say need at “critical level”

[Source: Sandra Haros, KTAR] — The 15 organizations that make up the Human Services Campus in downtown Phoenix say need is at a critical level.  There are 14,000 homeless men, women, and children living shelters, cars, or on the streets in Maricopa County.  

They’ve started a new campaign called “One Step Away,” which reflects the looming threat of homelessness for thousands of families. “Five dollars from one person isn’t going to solve the issue of homelessness or hunger,” said Steve Zabilsky with the Saint Vincent De Paul charity in Phoenix.  “But if you think about literally the millions of people who live in our state, if all of them were to give a dollar, or two dollars, or five dollars, that could make a huge, huge difference.”
