Most of the time when we talk about homelessness, big cities come to mind. But about seven percent of homeless people live in rural areas, where access to help is much harder to come by. Flagstaff, Ariz. is one of those places. While city officials work to find solutions, one woman has taken an old motel and turned it into transitional housing. READ MORE

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!! TO DATE ANEW LIVING IS AT AN 87% SUCCESS RATE IN MOVING THEIR RESIDENTS OUT AND INTO PERMANENT HOUSING!!
WHAT''S NEW AT ANEW?
This year ANEW Living is focusing on converting our larger living units into more family friendly studio-style units to better accommodate the needs of our homeless working poor family population in Flagstaff. Anew’s family unit expansion project focuses on converting larger single units into studio-style units to accommodate smaller-size families by providing them with a living environment more conductive to a long-term stay than the existing motel room. The conversion will add a kitchenette with additional storage, a standard sink (rather than using a bathroom sink for food preparation and cleaning dishes) The kitchenette gives them a food preparation and cooking area that helps promote a healthier lifestyle. Upgrades in the electrical are needed to support a larger refrigerator as well as adding new electrical lines and GFI outlets for safe usage of appliances.
The goal of ANEW Living’s Family unit Expansion Project is to increase the number of family units available for homeless families in Northern Arizona. Flagstaff’s single intake unit known as the Front Door reports there are over 100 applicants in Flagstaff area waiting for housing. ANEW Living is the only transitional housing program that allows for two parent families, single dads or mothers with teenage sons. We serve all the homeless working poor but this sub-population group (families) is given a higher priority. Our long-term goal is to convert 13 of our 21 units to family friendly studio-style units. To date we have converted five units and this year out goal is to convert four additional units.
Please help us by donating today and help homeless families in Flagstaff and surrounding areas end their cycle of homelessness. The mission of ANEW Living is to end the cycle of homelessness by providing safe, clean, affordable housing alternatives that offer pathways to a healthy and productive lifestyle. Our goal is to end the cycle of homelessness one family at a time.
What is ANEW Living’s Healthy Living Initiative? At ANEW Living we focus on all aspects of a persons' homelessness. Along with providing a clean safe living environment, teaching new life skills with basic financial management including savings and budgeting, we also focus on providing the resources to make healthier meal choices fostering an all around healthier lifestyle.
ANEW Living has an on-site Community Pantry available for free to all the residents living at ANEW. Our Community Pantry is stocked with meats, fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy, breads, cans foods and more. Thanks to the partnership with the Flagstaff Food Bank, St Mary's Food bank, and the Sunshine Rescue Mission. Many of our residents rely on cooking with a microwave, a hot plate, or a crockpot.
