Program guides access to services

To help you navigate resources offered through Desert Mission, a new program called People Advancing through Self – Sufficiency, or PASS, was launched in April. Through this bilingual service, a case manager will work with you to ensure you have access to food, safe and affordable housing, full-time employment, financial stability or healthcare.

Assistance includes:

  • Financial empowerment coaching (budgeting /money management).
  • AHCCCS and SNAP application.
  • Housing resources.
  • Food and nutrition.
  • Employment services (two forms of identification are required; call for acceptable forms).

Call Mary Perez, community resource coordinator, at 602-870-6060 ext. 338951 or stop by the Food Bank at 9229 N. Fourth St. Phoenix, to schedule an appointment.
