-- NYC Private Asset Management Group grants $872,000 for community support with self-help groups, career development groups and personal and professional growth within specific communities in Arizona. Three program directors from various nonprofit groups will be temporarily re-located to the Phoenix area to facilitate this venture. The largest of the three are noted to be Partner A Child Foundation out of Phoenix Arizona who piloted the original, “No Questions Asked Program” for community teens who were afraid to secure safe rides home to their family if compromised with drugs or alcohol. The project is scheduled to run 14 months in the Phoenix area and will move on to various counties of Arizona where it is most needed.
In light of the holidays around the corner, other volunteers from these local communities are also giving up time to visit senior care facilities to assist with depression and the like of many residents within these more isolated communities. Many of these volunteers have been directly affected themselves by this challenge and are eager to help others in the same position.
