BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB

Boys and Girls Clubs of America

Mission
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Vision
Provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

History
Boys & Girls Clubs of America had its beginnings in 1860 with three women in Hartford, Connecticut – Mary Goodwin, Alice Goodwin and Elizabeth Hammersley. Believing that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive alternative, they organized the first Club. With character development as the cornerstone of the experience, the Club focused on capturing boys interests, improving their behavior and increasing their personal expectations and goals. A cause was born.

FAMILY MATTERS

Family Matters is a non-profit ministry whose goal is to see families transformed by God’s grace into instruments of restoration and reformation by equipping families for every age and stage of life. We view families as the foundation of a successful society. Today, perhaps more than ever before, the family is being fragmented and undermined by many counter-forces such as busyness, relentless change, a lack of clear moral values, an attitude of indifference, and children being forced to grow up too fast. When families are unhealthy, our communities suffer many of the consequences in areas relating to economic productivity, education, law enforcement, health care needs, abuse, and violence.

FLASHES OF HOPE

Flashes of Hope raises funds to accelerate a cure for children’s cancer while honoring the unique life and memories of every child fighting cancer.

 

ALI  |  Photographed by Forrest MacCormack

Founded in 2001 by the parents of a child with cancer, we are a volunteer driven organization solely focused on children’s cancer. With chapters in 55 cities, we photograph more than 50% of the children annually diagnosed in the United States.

Since its founding in 2001, we have photographed 65,755 children at hospitals and camps across the United States.

For too many families, the portrait is the last one they have of their child. Thousands of children are waiting for a cure while doctors are forced to use outdated and toxic treatments. Cancer is the leading disease killer of children yet childhood cancer receives only 4% of federal funding for research.

In 2009, we began funding research and have already raised millions of dollars through our Kick-program and other initiatives.

Although Healing Hearts is a refuge where animals may live out their natural lives, they also have a chance to be adopted into new, loving homes. This allows Healing Hearts to serve a greater number as space becomes available at the ranch for other animals in need of our help.

HALO ANIMAL RESCUE

About HALO Rescue

What Does HALO Stand for?

HALO is an acronym that stands for Helping Animals Live On. It is a succinct, four-word definition of what we are here for.  It is the reason each and every employee and volunteer puts two feet on the ground.  It is a passion that goes beyond just loving dogs and cats.  It is a driving force in our lives; to make this community, this world, a safe place for homeless pets.

HALO Animal Rescue

Located in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, HALO Animal Rescue is a safety net for thousands of homeless dogs and cats each year.  We are a no-kill facility, which means we never euthanize an animal because we have run out of room, but it also means we are limited in the animals we can take in at any given time.    These animals are lovingly cared for while they are prepared for adoption, and then they are adopted into loving homes.

Animal Advocates

Our commitment goes beyond just caring for the animals within our shelter, we are working to create a better welfare system for all the animals in this community and beyond.  We feel it is critical to continue to nurture relationships with other welfare agencies to create life-saving strategies so we can all fully utilize our available resources to save as many lives as possible.

We are committed to seeing an end to the killing of savable pets.  In order to reach this goal, we must all work together, building from our strengths to provide the care you as the public want and expect us to give. In return, we ask for your support by providing a helping hand, temporary shelter or the financial means to provide the care they need.  Their lives are dependent upon every person taking part and joining the fight to save them.

PHOENIX SEMINARY

A Basis in Truth

Our global society is increasingly being defined as rudderless when it comes to truth. Indeed there has never been a more crucial time for biblical clarity, accuracy and direction for emerging leaders. The scriptures remind us “…not to be children in our thinking.”

Phoenix Seminary shapes men and women for ministry with the needed foundational tools so that, as pastors, missionaries or counselors, they can carry out their biblical calling and significantly impact the world through the Church on its mission.

The Skills to Learn and Lead

Phoenix Seminary will guide you to wisely navigate any area of calling or interest. We do not set out to answer every question, but our faculty, staff, and curriculum will equip emerging Christian leaders with the language skills, interpretational methods, theological scaffolding, and chronicled historical background necessary for solving these questions on their own.

We believe theological education integrates biblical scholarship, practical ministry experience through local churches, and one-to-one character mentorship. We have recognized the importance of retaining professors and instructors who are well-published scholars, and yet are also ministry practitioners that give our students a rigorous, effective, holistic education. We augment this teaching by partnering with local churches to provide the hands-on skill development that simply cannot come via the classroom. As a result, our graduates are prepared to lead in the midst of challenging new cultural and ministry settings with a solid foundation of biblical understanding and ministry skill sets.

  • The sanctity of human life is protected from its very beginning to its natural end.
  • Marriages and families are strengthened and supported by public policy, not attacked or weakened.

PHOENIX RESCUE MISSION

The Phoenix Rescue Mission is a place of hope, healing, and new beginnings for men, women, and children in our community struggling with homelessness, addiction, and trauma.

Mission

Providing Christ-centered, life-transforming solutions to persons facing hunger and homelessness.

Vision

A community mobilized to transform lives and end hunger and homelessness.

 

The Phoenix Rescue Mission had very humble beginnings. In 1952, LeRoy Davidson, a 28-year-old Phoenix house painter, attended a service where he talked with Jimmy Carr from California about the need for a Christian mission in Phoenix. Jimmy, LeRoy, and LeRoy’s wife, Grace, felt that the Lord had laid it on their hearts to save the souls of the men struggling on the streets of Phoenix.

The first evening of operation, a simple meal was prepared to be served after the gospel was shared. The Davidsons’ eight-year-old son, Stanley, helped his mother make plain sandwiches of bread and bologna to be served with Kool-Aid. About 15 migrant workers and vagrants attended, sitting on wooden planks supported by paint cans. Grace named their new venture the Phoenix Gospel Mission.

The Mission grew so quickly that it had to move twice within two years. In 1954, six local businessmen incorporated the Phoenix Gospel Mission  at a location on South 3rd Street, on the current location of Chase Field.

KITCHEN ON THE STREET

Hunger is a growing crisis for 17 million children in the United States! 1 in 4 American children struggling with food insecurity resulting in academic developmental issues that present both immediate and long-term challenges. Children that suffer from food insecurity are more likely to struggle with obesity later in life. Malnourished children often experience limited development such as stunted growth, are underweight and have weakened immune systems. These issues not only affect the child experiencing food insecurity, but the entire community.

Kitchen on the Street is a faith based community partner purposing to eliminate local hunger by offering food assistance programs in Phoenix Arizona and San Antonio Texas.

We invite you to come alongside Kitchen on the Street as we serve the hungry and hurting of the community. Many hungry kids report feeling “unwanted” and “unloved” as a result of hunger… the act of giving food transcends the physical and reaches into a child’s soul; it has lasting implications on who that child will grow up to be and how they will show love.

ARIZONA CHRISTIAN SCHOOL TUITION ORGANIZATION

We believe that every student should have the opportunity to receive a Christian Education.

ACSTO exists to give students the opportunity to attend a private Christian school. We have the privilege of being able to do this by transforming tax credit donations into valuable tuition scholarships—helping families afford a private Christian Education for their children.

We see a future where no Arizona family can say, “We wish we could put our children in a Christian School, but we just can’t afford it.”

Everything we do is geared towards making Christian Education affordable for families. We are committed to going above and beyond to make that happen.

We strive to make the process as easy as possible for you by partnering with you—whether you’re a donor, family, or a school. That’s why one of our pillars is to always be available. Tax Credits can be confusing, that is why we are here to serve you—call us, email us, or ask a coordinator.

It’s not enough for us to just award scholarships—we want to equip parents with what they need to fully take advantage of the tax credit program. We’re constantly developing new resources for you to utilize. Our Marketing team is available to provide Parent Workshops, attend school events to answer questions, as well as brainstorm new ways in which we can better serve all our partners.

Above all, we’re committed to being a good steward of our resources. Arizona law requires that 90% of all donations be awarded in scholarships. To better serve our families, we award 92% of all donations as scholarships, utilizing the 8% for our operating expenses and reinvesting into generating even more donations for our schools through education and resources.

COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL

Compassion International’s mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.

Compassion International
