Chandler Christian Community Center (CCCC) offers the only homeless shelter in the City of Chandler, the Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP). In partnership with faith-based organizations and community agencies in Chandler, Gilbert, and Tempe, Chandler I-HELP provides a safe place to sleep and a hot meal for homeless adults 7 nights per week, 365 days per year.

I-HELP also offers case management services to connect homeless individuals to the vital resources needed to regain self-sufficiency and break the vicious cycle of homelessness. Through our mobile shower unit, the “Chandler Clean Machine,” I-HELP provides guests with ready access to showers, an invaluable tool in gaining and maintaining employment.
