Tempe debuts new tools to help those experiencing homelessness

The city of Tempe invites residents to use its new tools to help those experiencing homelessness.

Tempe is trying new strategies to enhance its homeless response.

The city now offers a hotline that anyone can call to let the city know about a person who may be experiencing homelessness. An online form on Tempe’s website is available for residents to report homeless encampments.

In addition, residents can now view a dashboard that shows the city’s progress in addressing homelessness with up-to-date stats on total engagements and housing resolutions.

More information can be found at  homeless-solutions.tempe.gov.
