The Housing Authority of Maricopa County (HAMC) does not provide emergency housing. All applicants must meet federal income and eligibility requirements, and then be put on a waiting list. Because of the great demand for this service, it may take several months or even years before assistance can be provided.

The following organizations provide a variety of services in the Phoenix Metropolitan area, including emergency shelter for the homeless. Two referral service hotline numbers are also listed.
