Over a half million people are experiencing homelessness in America.

THE FORGOTTEN , INC. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving homeless women age 55 and above in the Phoenix, Arizona  metropolitan area.  

Old, female, and homeless

It used to be that homeless women over 50 were blessedly rare... Today, it's the norm.
In search of a meal or shelter, carrying all of your belongings with you in trash bags or suitcases for dozens of blocks back and forth can be incredibly taxing if you are young, but imagine having a disability or disease, like so many individuals in their 50s or older. With chronic pain or illness, it is that much harder. And then imagine those older women’s lives, when feeling safe means another night on the streets trying to find a place to hide undetected and out of the elements.

What you can do to help

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, your contributions are 100% tax-deductible. All proceeds will help to improve the lives of homeless individuals in need. No gesture is too small or large. Whether you partner with us or donate funds, we are truly grateful.

Donate Funds

Every penny matters

Be a blessing to others in need. Please give generously to support our unique population of underserved homeless individuals, women age 55 and above. Often times, these women experience homelessness because of specific circumstances such as disability and/or divorce. They need a compassionate hand UP, not a hand-out.
