The streets are not safe for homeless individuals in general, but older people are particularly vulnerable. Justa Center is a day resource center for those individuals over the age of 55 who have nowhere to live.
Justa Center is the only facility in the Phoenix area that caters specifically to older homeless adults. Staff members work with individuals to locate earned benefits (e.g., social security, AHCCCS, VA), obtain housing and medical assistance, and provide referrals to other services for the poor and homeless in the community.
Justa Center acts as a safety net for people who all too often slip through the cracks. Our members are individuals who have few resources and even fewer friends and family members on whom they can count for help.
