Tucson Center for Women and Children

Tucson, Ariz.



Each year, more than 2,600 women and children who are victims of domestic abuse receive crisis and renewal shelter, education and counseling, case management and referrals, lay legal advocacy, and other assistance through the Tucson Center, now called Emerge! This 36-month bridge loan from the Community Relief Fund, which offered program-related investments to high-performance human-service organizations that were providing food, shelter, and other emergency services during the economic crisis, helps to maintain 120 shelter beds while a new program model is implemented.
