Human Services Center - Heatlth-e-Arizona

A critical foundation for building stable families in our neighborhoods is the certainty they can purchase food, have healthcare coverage and are connected to potential cash benefits.  The Health-e-Arizona online application for Food Stamps, medical assistance and cash assistance is available at the Rio Vista through a bank of online computers and trained volunteer assistants.  

Economic troubles in Arizona have resulted in dramatic increases in the number of our community members seeking help at DES offices.  Increased wait times and decreased staffing in DES offices may slow down the process.  We know, too, that some people are uncomfortable applying for benefits or asking for help in crowded offices.  As the economic crisis continues more people may go without supportive benefits that could sustain them until they find a job or a job.  

Do you need help applying? 

Our team of volunteers are willing and able to assist you in the application process and eliminate the need to go to your local DES office.  The Human Services Center is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 – 12 and Thursday from 9 - 4. 

This service is available thanks to our partnership with the Department of Economic Security and the Neighborhood Roots System.
