2023 1st Quarter Grant Recipients

The mission of Angel Heart Pajama Project is “to provide new pajamas and books to children who are abandoned, abused, removed from homes and placed in foster care or living in homeless shelters in the City of Tucson, South Tucson, and in surrounding Cochise, Pima, Santa Cruz, and Yuma counties in Southern Arizona.

Candlelighters supports, serves and advocates for children and adolescents with cancer and other blood disorders, their families, long term survivors, bereaved families, and the professionals that care for them.

Candlelighters currently serves approximately 300-450 children and family members annually. In Southern Arizona about 70 children a year are diagnosed with cancer, and treatment lasts an average of 2 ½ years. For many children, the long term effects remain for a life time and navigating a new normal in school is very difficult. School advocacy is an area for which we provide numerous resources.

The mission of Reach For The Stars is to uniquely improve mental health for children and the community: through astronomy, STEM, and volunteer opportunities, influencing the course of history for generations to come.

Youth On Their Own (YOTO) is a dropout prevention program that supports the high school graduation and continued success of youth experiencing homelessness in Pima County.

Inspired by the students’ tenacity and willingness to stay in school, other school counselors, teachers, volunteers, and community members came together to form YOTO with the goal of helping students graduate.
