Feeding Hungry Homeless Children
is as easy as 1-2-3!
More than 9,000 children in Arizona are homeless. Homelessness is caused by their parents’ lack of fixed, regular, and adequate housing often resulting from extreme poverty; economic hardship due to job loss; illness, or similar reasons. As a result, many homeless families cannot afford to provide their children with adequate meals. For most children, the only meals they obtain are from ones through the school breakfast or lunch programs and they have nothing to eat between noon and the next morning!
“Homeless Engagement Lift Partnership (H.E.L.P.)” is striving to fill these hunger gaps with daily after school snack boxes and other measures. Unfortunately, we can not do it alone, and your help is urgently needed!

Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I claim this tax credit and still donate to the school and foster care tax credit programs?
YES! The programs are separate tax credits. When you give to Homeless Engagement Lift Partnership for the Charitable Tax Credit, you can still give to school, foster care, and veteran tax credits.
- Do I have to donate exactly $400 for singles or $800 for married couples?
Amounts lower than $400 and $800 also qualify, so a $100 gift will lower your state taxes by $100.

No, you do not need to itemize your taxes.
