Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and members of the Phoenix City Council have worked hard to help the homeless and promote affordable housing projects across the fifth-largest city in the country since they came to office.
Last year, the Mayor and the Council, along with other philanthropic investors launched several efforts to help the homeless obtain affordable housing including a facility to help unfortunate veterans last November 11, 2021.
Last week, October 27, 2022, the Mayor and other dignataries helped spearhead two other efforts to help Phoencians find affordable housing units.
The first is the expansion of the Hope Center, through Phoenix Rescue, which will see the addition of 240 new beds for anyone aged 18 or above.
The other event was the breaking ground of the Ulysses Development Group which will provide 192 new affordable homes ar the Salt River Flats for individuals or families whose income is at or below 60 percent of the area median income.
Commenting on social media, Mayor Gallego expressed her excitement for helping usher in these two projects, saying “I am excited to have been a part of two separate events today announcing a total of more than 400 affording housing units coming to the Phoenix Market…Ensuring affordable housing options for all who call our City home is a top priority for me.”
