At SJW, our mission is to connect the Valley’s disadvantaged, homeless, and transitioning individuals to quality jobs. We do this by providing support, resources, and tools necessary for becoming employable. SJW hopes that by creating this connection, they will become independent and lead healthier lives that benefit their community and families.Our annual Hike for the Homeless 2022 is a community hiking event open to the public, and held at the beautiful McDowell Mountain Regional Park in Scottsdale. The proceeds from Hike for the Homeless will directly fund SJW’s mission to help individuals experiencing poverty, homelessness, or crisis find quality employment and regain stability for their families.
“By supporting this event, you’re empowering individuals who are experiencing hardship to become self-sufficient through quality employment, allowing them to turn their lives around.” – Brent Downs, Executive Director
