Lifeology AZ, Inc
Creating the Handbook for Life You've Never Had
Lifeology’s mission is to end youth homelessness by learning, growing, and creating intentional communities where young people can live and thrive. After receiving 501c3 status in 2019 we immediately began educating the broader community on the unique needs of youth and young adults experiencing housing insecurity and homelessness. Partnering with schools and various organizations, Lifeology provides triage, crisis support and shelter, and mobile learning labs across Maricopa County. In October 2020, Lifeology received a 3-year Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) Basic Center Program grant to provide emergency shelter to minors (12-17). Renovations and modifications to a single-family home began in January 2021, ensuring it met all required shelter standards and becoming fully licensed by the Department of Child Safety in December 2021 and hosted its first youth in March 2022. Lifeology’s innovative mindset and grassroots mentality make them especially effective in developing and implementing effective and efficient strategies.
A Bit about Us
We know that early intervention is essential in reducing the impact of individual and community trauma. Lifeology disrupts the cycle of youth homelessness by providing low-barrier, equitable access to shelter and housing services, basic needs, connections to critical resources, social-emotional learning, physical activity enrichment, nutrition and food insecurity resources and meaningful relationships. Lifeology is committed to representing this population, ensuring their voice is heard and listened to.
“We are leaping into grief as if we had embraced it as a form of recreation. We are not what we have lost. We are not what has been taken from us. You are all too willing to embrace the void. If you do not cherish what remains you will all become as nothing. You will be nothing. We are not broken. We are each as whole as we will ever be again. And in the end when we cease to be we will all become memories”.

Meeting Youth Where They Are
We provide a youth-specific, and equitable continuum of care that addresses health and well-being while effectively, efficiently, and permanently moving youth from crisis to thriving. Lifeology has intentionally engaged at the system level to ensure youth voice is at the decision-making tables and build a more equitable coordinated entry system that identifies and tracks youth appropriately.
