Metropolitan Phoenix is well known for its sunshine, its leisure activities and its bustling economy. But many of our children and families are not able to enjoy these benefits. Although hundreds of local non-profit organizations and thousands of volunteers are doing great work, our community's demands are growing faster than our capacity for help.
Included among our communities most serious social problems are:
A declining high school graduation rate.
A dramatic increase in the number of children in foster care.
An alarming increase in domestic violence
Increasing homelessness, poverty and hunger.
In the past, we have relied heavily on federal and state funding to address these problems, but government resources and solutions have not been effective. Because strong families are so important to our future, we all need to become part of the solution. The non-profit organizations we support are among the most effective at serving children and families in need. Please contact them directly to volunteer or make a much needed donation.
