FANS collaborates with many organizations throughout Maricopa County that serve homeless students, homeless families in transition including homeless veterans, domestic violence victims and their children. FANS provides clothing, shoes, personal care and dental hygiene items, and school supplies to assist families and children that arrive at shelters with nothing but the clothing on their backs. Over 70,000 items annually are delivered to FANS partner agencies to support and ease the lives of families served by community partners. FANS Family Services Program supports the missions of these partners within our communities to move homeless families into stable housing and for their children to have continuous school attendance during the difficult time of homelessness.
FANS Partner Services includes Maryvale Revitalization Corporation, Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation, Homeward Bound, Veterans Administration East Valley, Homeless Veterans and Families, ASU Project Humanities, and Saint Peter Mission – Gila River Native American Community.
“I wanted to write to give Fans Across America an update on how your support has helped families in Maryvale (west Phoenix). Through your assistance we have been working with three churches, two ministries, two schools, two domestic violence shelters and a hospital. I can not give you exact numbers because once we deliver to one of our partners – they do the person to person dispersal. I did speak with some of our main partners however and have been informed that we have helped well over 4,500 people since 2016 thanks to your support! We always look forward to the opportunity to partner with you and Fans Across America!
Thank you so much for your support!”
Dwight D. Amery, President, Maryvale Revitalization Corporation
