PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Arizona Housing Fund (AZHF) has received a $120,000 grant from the Burton Family Foundation. One hundred percent of the funds will be used to provide grants to experienced Arizona nonprofits to bring more permanent, supportive affordable housing units to our state’s growing homeless population.

“Through the collective generosity of home buyers, sellers, and industry leaders, the Arizona Housing Fund is providing lasting and meaningful support to those experiencing homelessness across our state,” said Christine Burton, Co-Founder and Chair of the Burton Family Foundation. “We’re thrilled to play a small part in helping the visionaries behind the Arizona Housing Fund to achieve their goal of reducing Arizona’s homeless population.”

“We’ve had the opportunity to get to know the Burton Family Foundation through our relationship with the Arizona Community Foundation, where both our Fund and the Foundation are housed,” says AZHF founder Howard Epstein. “The Burton Family Foundation has provided significant support to a number of nonprofits in our community. Through this grant to the Arizona Housing Fund, the Burton Family Foundation will help fund a place to call home for homeless Arizonans.”

The Arizona Housing Fund, established in 2019, has raised nearly $2 million dollars and granted a total of $1.35 million to eight nonprofits (Housing Solutions of Northern Arizona, Native American Connections, Central Arizona Shelter Services, Housing for Hope, Arizona Housing Inc., St. Vincent de Paul, Coalition for Compassion & Justice, and Family Promise of Greater Phoenix) for housing projects to serve Arizonans experiencing homelessness.

“Our fund is often the last piece of funding needed to help get a project across the finish line,” explains Epstein. “At the recent ribbon-cutting at JoJo’s Place, a new project from Housing Solutions of Northern Arizona, we heard that it was the Arizona Housing Fund grant that helped cover unexpected construction costs and ensure the new community was able to open its doors as planned.”
