Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development served Phoenix-area homeless youths ages 12-25 with resource centers, emergency and transitional housing, life counseling and other programs. When Tumbleweed declared bankruptcy, UMOM New Day Centers acquired Tumbleweed programs to preserve the essential services for homeless teens. The inherited programs remain branded under the Tumbleweed banner. Along with a number of other Phoenix-based funders, The Lodestar Foundation provided funding to UMOM for a portion of the one-time, third-party costs of the acquisition of the Tumbleweed programs.
