I contacted Child and Family Resources when I was embarking upon opening a Pre-school in my home. It was important for me to find up to date information and state requirements for embarking upon such a venture. Child and Family Resources made everything very simple and easy to follow. They walked me step by step through the process with care and understanding. I am now the proud owner of an awesome pre-school thanks to the help I was given. They also let me know of grants available to me, with their help I was able to buy new equipment and supplies. The children are so excited! Child and Family Resources really made a difference in the lives of many children. Thank you and keep up the good work.

I was a DES certified child care, and heard about project MORE. I contacted them because I read about this program that helps people like myself to become a DHS certified. They were very helpful, every step of the way. They were there financially and in person and when I had my inspection everything checked out and I got my license!!! I'm very happy to have this kind of program that really helps you, and cares about you.

Hello I am a Family Home Daycare Provider in the Sahuarita Az. area. I was introduced to this wonderful program when I applied to become DES certified, they quickly contact me and made an appointment to try to meet the needs of the children that I provide care for. The staff were so friendly and always willing to help if you had any concerns or questions, informing you on what there program is all about and it felt great to see the new changes in my room and to see the children enjoy the new items provided. I would recommend this program to any provider that needs some help to get them started. Great program and very satisfied.

I offer my highest recommendation for Child and Family Resources and two of their programs that I have used for the past two years.

I first heard about the Camp HH and Happy Hours after school program through my son’s elementary school. I am a single mom with a full-time job and my son
has unique medical issues so I was very concerned about the care and supervision that he would receive after school or after school was out during summer weekdays while I was still at work.

My son is 10 years old and has been participating in Happy Hours and Camp HH for the past two years. The counselors at both Happy Hours and Camp HH offered a warm welcome and were prepared to supervise his medical needs while at the same time they treated him just like all the other children. Because of his diabetes the counselors became educated about his needs, stayed in regular contact with me about his blood sugar levels, how he was feeling, what he was eating or drinking, etc. They included him in everything and always had projects, games, field trips and other activities for the children to get involved in.

I have noticed improved confidence and independence in my son. He has made many good friends and looks forward to going to both Happy Hours during school and Camp HH in the summer. The greatest part for me is my sense of confidence in the staff when I drop him off, knowing that he is in good hands. The “icing on the cake” of course is that he has a great time and enjoys being there.

The staff of Discovery Learning Center on Broadway is working very hard to obtain a 5-star rating through the "First Things First" Program; the program decided on by the voters in the last election.

Our coach, Andrea Dekker; has worked very hared to obtain more equipment, books, school
supplies, and scholarship money than anyone before. She has worked with Ms. Beth, our assistants and teachers to more to better our learning center than with any other program we have been involved with in 40 years. We are over half-way through the process, hoping to receive a 5-star rating.

15 years ago I was new to Tucson and wasn't sure how to go about caring for children in my home here in Tucson, like I did in Michigan. I didn't know if I needed to be licensed, certified, or what. Someone told me about Child Care Resource & Referral (at Child & Family Resources) and I called them. They gave me all the information I needed to begin caring for children. Soon after I became a registered provider, they gave my info out to enough people that I was able to have my business up and running in no time at all! 6 years later I was working in a child care center and used Child Care Resource & Referral's Early Childhood Bulletin to find all the trainings I needed to fulfill the yearly requirements and help make me a better teacher! Every Child & Family Resources employee I came into contact with was respectful and interested in what I needed. I recommend them all the time!

Upon the birth of my 3rd child I was approached by a Healthy Families recruitment worker in my room at the hospital. I was very happy to have the opportunity to participate and receive services offered by Child & Family Resources. I have had a history of depression, alcoholism and I knew this time, with this new little life and this new support, I would not only overcome my reoccuring obstables but also be successful in the new roles in my life.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Healthy Families program. My FSS was dedicated, attentive, patient and encouraging every step of the way. I looked forward to our visits and the new tools I would receive to be a better wife, mother and better to myself.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make more efforts to reach at-risk populations/groups. Extend ages of care beyond early childhood. Possibly single parents with teenagers or single parents in general who need help connecting, adapting and surviving.

My name is Layla F. I would like to thank God, my mother and all the agencies involved for helping me get back on my feet and on the right track. To getting my life back together. Three and a half years ago I lost my kids and myself to methamphetamine addiction. I had been battling off and on
since I was sixteen. Every couple of years I would relapse. I had two children and was pregnant again during the worst of my addiction. I became the person I always looked down on. Doing drugs while pregnant, neglecting my kids of attention and sanity. I didn't care about anything except using. But somewhere inside, the real me was telling me that I knew it was wrong. And I prayed every night for God to help me quit. However I wasn't strong enough to stop on my own.
God works in mysterious ways. I knew I was pregnant but I was scared to see the doctor. I kept trying to get clean on my own. Finally at seven and a half months I went to my first appointment. Three weeks later, a couple of days before my sonogram was scheduled, I went into labor. I didn't even know I was having twins. I gave birth to Felix and then the doctor said there was another baby. I couldn't believe it. One hour later Freddy was delivered via c-section. The next day CPS paid me a visit at the hospital. All of my kids were removed from my custody. I was angry and hurt. I couldn't comprehend until later the danger I was putting them in.
I did whatever I was told to get them back. I enrolled in SEABHS drug counseling and parenting classes and therapy. I went to NA once a week. I was gave urine samples for analysis at least three times a week, I was always clean. Child & Family Resources did weekly visits and were very emotionally supportive. The Blake Foundation sent therapists and nurses. Now all my kids are in their Headstart Daycare Center, La Palamito, the best in town. They were all aware of what I had done and they still treated me like a real person with feelings. Their true care and concern over my well being as well as their support helped me become a more responsible person and a better mother then I had ever been. They made me feel like I could transition back into the real world and be a respectful person. They taught me the importance and how to establish a routine and structured lifestyle. I learned a lot.
By becoming an independent woman, working and supporting my family and taking care of my kids I realized I could rely on myself. Other lessons were harder learned later when I left the abusive relationship I had sustained from my kids father for the past nine years. This self reliance made me see my life for what it was so I could change it and to be a better parent. Things used to seem hopeless, but me changing made a difference made a difference.
I've seen so many families destroyed and children devastated because of the drugs and the neglect it entails. I didn't want to be another statistic in this frighteningly large epidemic. I have to take care of my family and myself, that is my job. I am saddened to see much of this help depleted by budget cuts. For much more is needed than hope. God bless all the families still struggling.

I went to Child & FAmily Resources after being released from prison and looking for work with the ultimate goal of reconnecting with my two children. I was particularly discouraged because I did not think I would be able to find a job, due to the type of felony conviction I had. They enrolled him in the Arizona Center for Resonsible Fatherhood program where I began the life skills/parenting classes. They also helped me get an email address, bus card, new clothes and shoes for interviewing. They helped me with good job referrals. I am now doing on the job training to work at a community service agency as a permanent clerical worker.
