The Tempe Race to Alleviate Homelessness supports the mission of Tempe Community Action Agency's I-HELP Shelter Program; to assist men and women to overcome homelessness and improve their level of self-reliance. I-HELP is Tempe's only homeless shelter program and serves up to 40 men and women per night with involvement from a vast network of community and faith-based partners.
This community event helps make a difference to more than 600 homeless men and women annually who seek safety, shelter, and support in their journey to regain independence and long-term self-sufficiency. I-HELP empowers men and women to overcome their challenges, both short and long-term, in order to successfully secure employment, safe permanent housing, and independence.
