Fans Across America™
FANS is a Chandler AZ based 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Organization which provides basic daily necessities to homeless students and families, and victims of domestic violence and sexual trauma. All clients assisted by FANS are referred by Chandler Unified and surrounding school districts, community-based social service agencies, law enforcement victims services, partner domestic violence and sexual trauma shelters, and other qualified agencies. A scheduled appointment is required for service at FANS.
Families and individuals referred to FANS may be eligible for SNAP benefits (Food Stamps) and housing vouchers, however, many of these public programs do not allow for the purchase of tangible items. They have little or no financial resources for everyday essentials such as clothing, shoes, socks, underwear, personal and dental hygiene items, basic household needs, diapers, school supplies, backpacks, and other daily living necessities. FANS has been a resource of these basic needs since 2010. In 2019 FANS provided over 100,000 items of daily items of necessity, over 97,000 diapers and diapering supplies, 700 fully stocked school backpacks, and 2500 holiday gifts through FANS Family Services (FANS Locker Room) FANS – Compadres Kids Closets, FANS – Compadres Diaper Bank, and FANS Partner Services.
