Transforming Guests Inside & Out

Last year, more than 22,000 people in Maricopa County were homeless. They had no place of their own to sleep, keep their belongings or take care of themselves.

Imagine going days or weeks without bathing, changing your clothes or brushing your teeth.

At Paz de Cristo, our guests get to take a hot shower with soap and shampoo. They receive a new pair of socks, underwear and a t-shirt. Professional clothing sets job seekers up for success in their interviews, and casual wear is theirs for the asking.

Free haircuts are given by licensed cosmetologists and barbers.

Our guests are transformed inside and out. They leave standing about ten feet tall with a whole new frame of mind. They have hope for a brighter future.

No one creates success on their own. Together, we can  help break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.
