Family

GAP cares for over 300 foster children annually in family style residential group homes in Tucson. Siblings are able to stay together while in care due to the larger size of our homes. GAP helps foster teens and young adults learn the life skills necessary to successfully “age out” of foster care and into adulthood with mentoring and independent living programs. With the goal of healthy restoration of families wherever possible, GAP provides court-ordered supervised visitation between foster children and their birth parents. We are contracted with the state to provide training and licensing to individuals and couples who desire to become foster parents. GAP’s reach even extends overseas to support a group home in Thailand for young children rescued from the sex industry.

Community

GAP’s Community warehouse shares fresh food and basic needs items with over 70 Southern Arizona nonprofits serving the needy. Over 1 million pounds of healthy vegetables, fruit, and other perishable items are distributed annually throughout the community by GAP’s partnering nonprofits and churches. Throughout Southern Arizona, nonprofits that serve the marginalized annually receive over $1,000,000 worth of hygiene items, paper goods, cleaning supplies and other needed items from GAP’s warehouse. Through partnerships with nonprofits, churches, businesses, schools and hundreds of volunteers, GAP’s outreaches serve food, backpacks, and toys at Christmas to low-income children and their families. Our Community Kitchen and Mobile Food Truck train young people in the culinary arts, while maximizing the use of donated perishable food and feeding thousands in the community.
