Give back to children in your community


Wahl Family (1) 1000pxw.jpgWhen you give to Southwest Human Development, you’re giving to children like Carter – an inspiring little boy who particpated in our Side-By-Side Parent-Child Playgroup for children on the autism spectrum. Thanks to support from people like you, Carter and many others like him have dramatically improved their social, communication and problem-solving skills - so they'll be prepared for success in school and life.

And that’s just one example of what your contributions can do.  With your help, we can provide services to thousands of children in Arizona. Gifts can be one-time or recurring—the choice is yours! Here are other examples how your dollars are working to help the children and families at Southwest Human Development:

$1 per week gives a child with a behavioral health disorder a seasonal water park pass to help increase social skills practice through our Direct Support Services program.

$2 per week gives a foster child living in a new area to attend a six week after school science program through Kinship Care and Adoptions.

1 - child in new chair222.jpg$5 per week helps more than 17 families in the In-Home Services program purchase school supplies such as crayons, scissors, paper, pencils, and glue, allowing their children to feel successful at the start of the school year.

$10 per week creates 3 customized chairs and table sets from our ADAPT Shop.  Made of ABS plastic and foam, the table is made to fit with the chair at a specific height, helping a disabled child use their hands more effectively.  This could allow the child to hold and look at a book, play with a toy, or help feed herself for the first time.

Southwest Human Development Giving Society

The premier philanthropic membership program of the agency, recognizing and celebrating the generosity of our contributors.

$20 per week provides 20 children growing up in poverty with new books to take home and keep through our Reach Out and Read program.  Pediatricians distribute the books during regularly scheduled well-child check-ups for children between the ages of six months and five years.

PortOfOpport.-325 web.jpg$50 per week allows over 8 families to complete the Raising A Reader program, an eight-week early literacy program that helps low-income parents and caregivers learn how to integrate books and storytelling into their family routines.

$100 per week provides a speech-generating device from our Assistive Technology program to a child who is unable to speak.

$200 per week provides 10 full-team assessments for 10 children to receive the best of medical, developmental and mental health care from a professional team of pediatric specialists through our Children’s Developmental Center.
