Child Crisis Arizona is pleased to announce the formal completion of its three-year, $25 million Fostering Bright Futures Campaign, which supports the construction of the Child Crisis Arizona Center for Child & Family Wellness.
The facility is a 38,000-square-foot, climate-friendly, net-zero campus that is set to open in 2024 offering a broad spectrum of programs and services, including counseling, parenting classes, and child enrichment activities, according to a press release.
“We were beyond thrilled to gather so many incredible donors together in one place, on Giving Tuesday no less, to celebrate them and show our appreciation for their generosity,” said Torrie Taj, CEO of Child Crisis Arizona. “Their transformational gifts have allowed us to realize the vision of a centralized campus in Mesa, providing crucial wraparound services for children and families in need.”
In addition to its current comprehensive programs and services, Child Crisis Arizona is now partnered with Arizona’s early childhood agency, First Things First, to provide resources for every baby born in Arizona by delivering free ‘Parent Kits’ to hospitals and birthing centers.
“Child Crisis Arizona always answers the call for those in need,” said Steve Zabilski, president and CEO of the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust. “The gifts given in support of the new Center for Child & Family Wellness will enable the agency to expand its reach and provide even more children and families with the support and resources they need to overcome life’s challenges.”
Although this capital campaign fundraising effort has successfully closed, this is just the start of an incredible effort to ensure Child Crisis Arizona continues to meet the ever-growing needs of the community. Already this year, the organization has served over 20,000 individuals through prevention and intervention programs and is on track to double that in 2023.
