Knows It's Fun to do Good!

It's Fun To Do Good and Cardon Children's Medical Center in Gilbert, Arizona knows it!

We went out and visited very special organization, Cardon Children's Medical Center. Part of Banner Medical. This one hits home very closely to the FatCats team in Gilbert since one of our employee's boy was in their care for several years. Cardon Children's Medical Center is a highly specialized group of pediatric doctors, physicians, administrators and staff that provide care to children with chronic and life threatening illnesses. During our visit we were able to reconnect to the special staff who provided incredible care for our employee's son. These are outstanding individuals who choose to be where they are because this is what they were meant to do in life. It was a very special time. 

We provided several Family Special passes for the team and more importantly provided items for the children who we honor to select presents to choose from the special chest (room). 

We've also partnered with this team in planning an event for the children who have survived their illnesses in the care of Cardon Children's Medical Center.

It's Fun To Do Good and Save the Family Foundation of Mesa, Arizona knows it!

This month we also honored the special people at "Save The Family" of Mesa. This charitable organization provides Family Assistance throughout the greater Phoenix area.

Their Mission:  Save the Family equips families to address poverty, overcome homelessness and achieve self-sufficiency. 

They Provide Housing

Operating over 176 units of housing Valley wide, we provide transitional housing for homeless families and housing to keep working poor families stable through market adjusted rents.

They Focus on Children

Over 60% of our clients are children. We strive to create stability for homeless children through consistent housing, stable schooling, after-school programs, tutoring, and extracurricular activities.

They Change Lives

We provide a full array of support services to help our clients succeed. We offer financial literacy education, career development support, budgeting workshops, parenting classes, and self-esteem coaching. Our clients’ successes include the following: high school diplomas/GEDs, home ownership, full-time employment, college degrees, scholarships, good credit scores, and savings accounts.

Their History

Save the Family began serving homeless families when we acquired four housing units in 1988. Soon after they were housed, families recognized the need for services to support their journey into self-sufficiency. In response to those requests, Save the Family offered the first adult and children’s education classes in 1991. At that time, adult classes focused on parenting, as well as personal growth and development. Children’s classes focused on expressive art activities aimed at assisting children in sharing their experiences.
