Sunup Rotary of Prescott has enjoyed a very close relationship with Prescott Area Shelter Services (PASS) since 2016, providing a hot, ready-to-eat dinner for the shelter residents on a regularly scheduled date every month. Additionally, Sunup members usually volunteer for additional meals to help cover open dates for the shelter.
The primary goal of PASS is to alleviate Yavapai County's growing need for an emergency shelter for homeless women and children. PASS helps homeless women to gain the skills, resources and support to transition out of homelessness during their 90 days at the shelter. The Shelter provides the following services year-round: food, shelter, clothing, resources, and case management. Above all, they strive to ensure that every woman and child at the shelter feels safe and supported.
In addition to providing meals, Sunup has assisted PASS in a variety of means, such as sanding/painting their outside picnic tables, furnishing their new building additions, delivering over 1000 medical-grade protective masks, and even providing mini-shelters for their beloved pet cats.
