Satisfying the basics of life finding safe/clean housing.

Chicanos Por La Causa

We believe in human dignity.

Everyone deserves the power to live a meaningful life. Unfortunately, structural inequities create barriers for too many, closing off opportunities and fueling injustice. Our programs give individuals and families a seat at the table.

We facilitate growth through five Areas of Impact:

. Health & Human Services
. Housing
. Education
. Economic Development
. Advocacy

Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC) was formed in 1969 to fight discrimination against the Mexican American community. Inspired by Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez, we advocated for equity in education, politics, and labor conditions. Today, CPLC provides services to people of all backgrounds while honoring our Mexican-American roots.

With offices in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas, we impact more than 2 million lives every year.

Arizona Department of Housing


Housing is the foundation f​or success. We lead and collaborate with our community partners to create, preserve and invest in affordable housing. We protect housing consumers and revitalize communities to make Arizona the best place to live.​

The Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) administers programs for Housing Partners who apply to the department for funding. The majority of the agency’s programs are federally
funded, and the agency receives no State General Fund support. The agency is also home to the Arizona Home Foreclosure Prevention Funding Corporation.

ADOH does not own or build housing but rather manages funding for the programs through for profit and non-profit developers,
faith-based organizations, service organizations, and state, county and city entities who apply for funding and meet criteria developed by state and federal law.

Salvation Army - Corps Community Center

The Salvation Army provides a wide range of elderly care and support options.

The Salvation Army passionately invites senior citizens into relationships with others through our many senior centers and eldercare programs. To help combat the loneliness, depression, and loss of independence that often accompany old age, we provide group dining experiences, coordinate activities, visit the homebound, and offer residential assistance for older adults in need of a senior living community.


The Salvation Army works to stimulate the minds and bodies of older adults via educational opportunities, low-impact exercise, dances, lunches, fellowship, and countless other "young at heart" activities.


To help ease the functional transitions associated with advanced age, we offer housing assistance and living quarters for the elderly - each cultivated with a loving atmosphere of help, kindness, and acceptance.

Adult Day Care Centers:

Because the mental and physical disabilities associated with old age impact both the elderly and their loved ones, The Salvation Army offers adult day care facilities. Here, older adults unable to independently care for themselves enjoy friendship, kindness, and monitored activities while their caretakers enjoy a much-needed break.
