Spend an evening “at the tables” and support Save the Family’s efforts to provide transitional and permanent housing for homeless families and a path to self sufficiency at Havana Nights, A Casino Event, this Friday evening.
“What a wonderful way to spend a fun evening with friends, both old and new, of Save the Family and support our work to provide housing, hope and a path to a new future to so many families,” Save the Family CEO Jacki Taylor said.
This is the first year of this casino event, but Save the Family has used casino-type elements as part of its annual major gala in the spring. Save the Family Foundation of Arizona is located at 125 E. University Drive in Mesa.
Save the Family offers a variety of programs designed to empower families to conquer homelessness and achieve life-long independence. Through targeted services that align with the goals and strategies set by Valley of the Sun United Way and the Maricopa Association of Government’s Continuum of Care, families at Save the Family end the damaging effects of family homelessness by:
- Improving their education and employment opportunities.
- Accessing safe, permanent housing.
- Building family competencies.
Early on, Save the Family recognized that families need more than safe housing to conquer homelessness. They also need skills and confidence to lead productive, self-sufficient lives. Today, Save the Family offers an array of programs for adults, youth, and children, including:
- Parenting skills, personal development classes, and support for victims of domestic violence.
- Career development, literacy support, and financial education.
- Dental, vision, and legal services.
- Tutoring, after-school classes, and camps and activities for youth.
