One-year Transitional Program
FSS\'s Transitional Program is a pilot project that helps 10 individuals disabled or age 50 and over or leave homelessness behind and find stable housing.
The program helps the selected group navigate social services, obtain identity cards and paperwork, and improve their mental and physical health.
We focused our first transitional program on individuals disabled or age 50 and over becuase homeless individuals over the age of 47 have a mortality rate 3 or 4 times higher than the general public. This program remains open when our Emergency Winter Shelter closes.
Winter Emergency Shelter
Seasonal Shelter Operates October through April
Even with all of the beds at FSS and other organizations in town, Flagstaff likely had at least 25 people sleeping out on the streets or in the woods in the coldest winter months. On the worst winter nights the majority of these homeless come in droves seeking safety.
As a result of our efforts in since 2009, Flagstaff made it through Flagstaff\'s second-worst winter on record without any weather related deaths! We will continue to open our Emergency shelter each October to provide this much needed service to Flagstaff.
In the last few years, FSS has had to operate in overflow \"code-blue\" conditions because of the life-threatening weather outside. We do not turn away individuals regardless of their sobriety, mental health or physical health.
