Since 2005, dedicated members of the AMA have raised nearly $700,000 to benefit at risk families and children of Arizona. Raising money for the Arizona Multihousing Charitable Foundation (AMCF) Tucson in 2016 benefits Our Family-New Beginnings For Women in Tucson and the Julie Hearst Scholarship Fund.
All funds raised locally are donated locally. In Tucson, our 2016 fundraising will benefit Our Family Services-New Beginnings and the Julie Hearst Scholarship Fund.
Our Family Services provides shelter and support to homeless children, youth and families.
Emergency Shelter Services
New Beginnings Emergency Shelter Services are for families, couples and singles who are experiencing homelessness. The program includes intensive case management and provides job search guidance.All of the clients staying in scattered site shelter work closely with their case manager to develop family goal plans that identify short- and long-term objectives with timelines for overcoming barriers to self-sufficiency. Clients coming into the program must be willing and able to work, or be able to attain sufficient income to move towards independence. Preference is given to families with a minor child in their custody
Two and three-bedroom units are available for up to two years to families who are homeless or near homeless. Case management is required in this program, which gives families more time and supportive services so they can save money and improve their earnings ability before having to support their families in a market-rate environment. Our children’s program addresses the special developmental, social and academic needs of children who have been homeless. The cost of rent is based on income. We have 51 apartments that are used for Transitional Housing or Affordable Housing.
We help some of Tucson’s highest-risk children learn to read. We help troubled families cope with addiction and find healing. We help people learn to be better parents, improve their lives and their relationships, and build stronger families. We help older and disabled people live safely and with dignity in their own homes.
Our Family is a $5.4 million organization with nearly 80 employees and an active corps of volunteers. It is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and Children Inc. and licensed as a behavioral healthcare institution by the Arizona Department of Health Services.
