Clean Zone Program Coordinator
 
 
 
Andre House is a day services agency for people experiencing homelessness in the heart of Phoenix. Located across the street from the Human Services Campus, Maricopa County’s homeless services hub, we work in partnership with a network of agencies to meet the basic critical needs of people experiencing homelessness. In August of 2019, the service providers at Andre House and the Human Services Campus launched an innovative neighborhood clean-up pilot program. The program began as a response to concerns made by community members in the neighborhoods surrounding the Human Services Campus. Residents in nearby neighborhoods were concerned about the impacts of trash and blight due to homelessness. The congregation of street trash also posed a public health risk to the clients experiencing homelessness in the area. After identifying our pilot area (a grid between 9th and 15th avenues and Jefferson and Buchanan streets), we looked to successful neighborhood clean-up programs in other cities for models and best practices. We conducted client surveys to gauge participation and appropriate rewards. Since August we have been conducting two clean-ups per week and collecting data on our impact, successes, and areas for growth.
