Collaborative Learning Center for Children of Abused or Homeless Parents

Homeward Bound is the largest provider of transitional housing for homeless and domestic violence families with children in metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona. In 2000, Homeward Bound opened The Thunderbirds Family Village, a five-acre, secured campus that contains 80 two-bedroom housing units. This housing focuses on younger mothers and their children who have been victimized by domestic violence and homelessness. A Lodestar matching grant provided over three years enabled Homeward Bound to launch a collaborative children’s learning center—in partnership with the YMCA and Southwest Human Development, another human services provider—on the Thunderbirds campus.
