Care Fair Tempe
Sometimes we are those who need some extra help, sometimes we are helping others and often we do both.

Thank you to all who attended Care Fair Tempe 2022 on March 19, as we celebrated Tempe Human Services Day. This annual outdoor event, sponsored by Salt River Project and held in partnership with the City of Tempe, offered a fun-filled opportunity for the community to connect with the many resources offered by local human service agencies and nonprofits all in one place.
Well-attended by the community, attendees were able to visit 50 different booths, obtain information about their organization, the free services and programs they offer and any volunteer opportunities. The areas of resources included aging, youth and children, homelessness, health care, mental health, suicide and drug prevention, disabilities, affordable housing, domestic violence, and more. Care Fair helped bring together community and “connect those who in need with those who care.” Attendees enjoyed entertainment, kids activities, food, Tempe fire truck and police car, community fellowship, and more.
Plan to join us for next year’s event in March 2023.
Thank you to our Sponsors

Unique Experience for Residents to Learn About Tempe Human Services
In 2021, due to the continuation of pandemic constraints, we opted to hold a Care Fair Community Story Walk in lieu of our annual in-person event. This event helped residents BE CONNECTED in Tempe to learn how to get help and where you can give help. Residents enjoyed the outdoors while strolling on the Escalante Park StoryWalk® trail with family, friends and neighbors. While walking the trail, residents learned about Tempe human services and obtained information about free resources and opportunities available to Tempe residents. Care Fair Tempe helps residents get connected with agencies who offer help with a specific area of need and opportunities to volunteer or donate needed items.
All of us could use some support at times or may want to help others who need support. Each year thousands of Tempe residents are able to seek services for such areas as aging, dementia, youth and families, homelessness, addiction, abuse, loneliness, isolation, disabilities, healthcare, mental health, financial assistance, hunger, jobs and more.
Your tax dollars and Together Tempe donations help provide over $1 million each year to bring services to those in Tempe.
