Phoenix Rescue Mission's "Hope Coach" helps the homeless

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

A national survey reveals the Phoenix homeless population has grown by 11 percent.

More than 13,000 men, women and children are homeless in Maricopa County alone.

The people who live without homes faces many challenges, but they are especially hard pressed on a bitterly cold day.  One valley man is helping.

He knows some people by name.

"Scooter, what's going on man? Did you get plenty to eat?"

Others he introduces himself to, then hands out meals, toiletries, sleeping bags and blankets on this frigid day.

"You know who were are now?  You know you can come down and get a bed.  I know the place."

Cliff Danley wants to give homeless people hope and tell them about the Phoenix Rescue Mission -- a place that can help them get back on their feet.

"There's options.  You're not as stuck as you think you are."

Danley would know.  He was homeless a short time ago.

"Homelessness isn't the type of person it is just a condition I found myself in that condition," he said.

Arizona is ranked the fourth worst state in the nation for homelessness and Danley and the "Hope Coach" van want to help change that.

"They can choose a whole new pathway that lead to a new place in life. that is big picture. The immediate picture is can I help you stay warm?"

Phoenix Rescue Mission is always looking for volunteers and donations.
