The Saguaros recently awarded a $100,000 grant to Care Fund, which will be used to provide revenue to Care Fund’s mortgage and rent assistance program to help families in crisis stay in their homes.

“This grant will have a direct impact on the lives of Arizona families experiencing challenges most of us can’t even imagine,” said Saguaros Charities Chair Trent Hancock in a prepared statement. “The goal of Care Fund’s Mortgage and Rent Assistance program helps to prevent further trauma from eviction, foreclosure, moving and homelessness; and to provide stable housing for critically ill and injured children so that they may heal faster, physically and emotionally.”

For families, multiple moves can create damage to credit ratings, plus additional costs associated with a housing search and moving can be incurred. Multiple moves can also exacerbate family turbulence — interfering with parents’ abilities to keep consistent schedules for their children (mealtime, bedtime, bath time, etc.) and escalating incidents of spousal and child abuse, officials at the Care Fund report.

“For many parents, the balance between maintaining a career and managing the complexities and demands of their child’s chronic health problems becomes unsustainable,” Care Fund Executive Director Barb Bowers said.

“In addition, while housing costs in Arizona have soared, incomes have not increased at the same rate. Many families live on the edge financially with high debt and little savings. For these families, an extended health crisis can be the tipping point leading to financial ruin. Donors like The Saguaros help stop this from occurring.”

Members of The Saguaros raise funds throughout the year to support Arizona children’s charities like Care Fund with two signature events — the NiteFlite golf tournament and gala, which will be held Nov. 11-12 at McCormick Ranch Golf Club and The W Scottsdale.
