Sustainable Families

In April 2016, representatives of about twenty community groups met to discuss ways to help low-income residents of greater Sahuarita-Green Valley move “From Insufficiency to Self-Sufficiency.” The participants—leaders from government, education, business, media, human services, faith, and recreation—expressed their desire for greater cooperation among community organizations and more services for low-income residents so that we can strengthen and secure our community. The meeting resulted in a Steering Committee that undertook an investigation into the most significant needs of low-income residents and drafted this study and its recommendations to promote greater collaboration as well as initiatives to address the underlying causes of poverty and insufficiency.
