Some Pima County non-profits are about to get a boost from the State of Arizona.

Six organizations that work with the homeless are scheduled to receive nearly $2 million dollars in grants from the Arizona Department of Housing.

The money will be divided up between the Sullivan Jackson Employment Center, Compass Affordable Housing, Old Pueblo Community Services, Primavera, Our Family Services, and Community Bridges Inc.."

"Seeing an investment from the state of this amount money is really going to help out a lot," said Dan Sullivan with Sullivan Jackson Employment Center.

Non-profit officials say the money will be used to help more than 70 families with job training skills, job search resources,  and housing.

"It's a giveback. They become active an active member of the economic community and the social community," said Maryann Beerling with Compass Affordable Housing.

It's unclear exactly how the money will be divided between the 6 organizations.

However, non-profit officials say many of them plan on working together.

Rapid rehousing programs like the one ran by Sullivan Jackson and Compass have a 60-80% success rate when it comes  to helping homeless families find jobs and stable housing.
