Save Healthy Green
SHG - A Nonprofit Housing Collaboration
“Safe, Healthy, Green” Sustainable Housing Collaboration
What is Safe, Healthy, Green?
Safe, Healthy, Green is a collaborative effort made by more than 10 Tucson nonprofits.
Each member nonprofit provides transitional or emergency shelter to women, children, veterans, and all those who are in need. Through our collaborative efforts, member nonprofits benefit from peer-shared learning, workshops, and meetings. The group’s focus is on how to efficiently maintain shelter facilities, how to keep program beneficiaries safe, and to ensure shelters and housing units are healthy places for all.
While the initiative is peer to peer, Pima County and the City of Tucson provide funds through the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant program. Funding is allocated for organizations that meet all participant requirements and take an active role in the community and peer to peer sharing.
Examples of funded projects:
- Switches from evaporative cooling to HVAC
- Replacement of single-pane windows with high-energy saving windows
- Exterior and interior insulation upgrades
- Security upgrades: fencing, alarm systems and security lighting
- Upgrades to plumping systems
