Arizona Helping Hands Announces Grant From The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust
Arizona Helping Hands, the largest provider of basic needs for Arizona’s children in foster care, is the recipient of a $100,000 grant awarded by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.
Funding from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust underwrites support for construction costs for the Licensing and Safety program at Arizona Helping Hands Foster Family Resource Center. The Licensing and Safety program provides fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, first aid kits, and safety locks required by the State to approve foster homes for licensing.
“In 2018, Arizona Helping Hands was able to provide licensing and safety equipment to more than 1,000 families. The Licensing and Safety program removes an impediment to the licensing process by providing items for free, while promoting safety and health,” said Dan Shufelt, AHH President, and CEO.
Arizona Helping Hands is the largest provider of essential needs, such as beds, cribs, clothing, and diapers, for children in foster care, and because of the ever-growing needs of children entering the foster care system, AHH relocated to a newly built 18,000 square foot facility in November 2018 in order to provide more resources for children in foster care.
The Foster Family Resource Center’s purchase and renovation are the focus of the organization’s $3 million capital campaign for which funding is being sought.
“There is a great need today for more families to step forward to open their hearts and homes to children in need,” Shufelt said. “We are so grateful to the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust for supporting this important program with their capital gift.”
“Our goal is to help clear the way financially for more families to open their homes to foster our community’s displaced children,” said Carol Schilling, trustee chair, Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.
