​​Building A New Community.  (NPR.ORG) 

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

ANEW Healthy Living Initiative
As part of our growing service to our ANEW Living residents, we are excited to announce the addition of a Healthy Living component to ANEW Living’s Program Services! We already assist our residents with getting healthy financially – now it is time to help with physical health. 
What is ANEW Living’s Healthy Living Initiative? This new program will be part of our Life Skills classes. Our cooking classes will focus on nutrition and healthier cooking/eating choices. Topics will include healthy cooking on a budget with limited resources. Many of our residents rely on cooking with a microwave, a hot plate, or a crockpot. Each class will feature a different menu and program participants will leave with the ingredients needed to make the recipe on their own and a recipe card for that meal. For now, ANEW Living plans to focus on meal preparation using a crockpot.
Recipes Wanted! We are asking our Community and Partners to send us their favorite (and simple!) crock pot recipes to build a library of healthy meals for our residents. Please send us recipes that contain simple ingredients – many of our residents rely on boxes from the local food bank or shop at stores like Dollar Tree. Ingredients should consist of: any type of meat, vegetables, fruits, dairy, and basic canned soups/broths. Cake mixes are okay too. Email your recipe to Lori@ANEWLiving.org. All recipe contributor’s names will be listed on the recipe card unless you prefer to remain anonymous.
What Type of Recipes are Needed? We need recipes for Main Courses and Desserts. Again, recipes should feature simple and readily available ingredients. The simpler, the better!
I’m Not a Chef – How Else Can I Help? We can always use donations of food for our recipes – most of the ingredients come from the Flagstaff Food Bank but the food we receive varies and we want to supply a complete list of ingredients for each recipe. New or used crockpots are needed too. If you have a crockpot you are not using, we’d love to put it to work! ANEW Living is trying to build an inventory of crockpots our residents can check out and use to cook their dinner. We need crockpots both LARGE (family size) and SMALL (for our single residents).
 Contact Lori@ANEWLiving.org if you are interested in being a part of our ANEW Healthy Living Initiative or have questions. Send a recipe, share a crockpot, sponsor a meal – all contributions are welcome and put to good use!


ANEW LIVING is now part of Flagstaff's "FRONT DOOR" single access entry point to assist our homeless population in obtaining shelter/housing. The Front Door eliminates the need to call every agency in town telling your story/need multiple times.

If you are in need of transitional housing please contact one of the "Front Door" agencies listed below.

All potential applicants into our Program are now required to go to Flagstaff Shelter Services if you are seeking shelter/housing for one person or Catholic Charities if seeking housing/shelter for a family.
