The City of Tempe’s Crisis Assistance Response Effort, known as CARE 7, is dedicated to supporting citizens who are experiencing emotional trauma. In their partnership with Tempe Fire and Tempe Police, they provide comprehensive quality response, advocacy and resources to individuals in need. Additionally, CARE 7 provides a continuum of care for crime victims, assisting with all facets of the criminal justice system. All services provided by CARE 7 are free of charge, and all items given to the clients they serve are donated. However, some services must be purchases, such as bus tickets and hotel stays. While they recognize that a hotel room is considered gap housing, it is a method of providing a client with the opportunity to rest, bathe, and stabilize long enough to explore solutions. CARE 7 anticipates that much of the funding provided to the organization through this campaign will be used to provide gap housing.
