Community partners believe there are ten vital services for surviving and thriving shown to increase families’ health, safety, and self-sufficiency. The RE:center strives to connect families to these services through our programs, community partners, and Survive-to-Thrive initiative. If a service does not exist, the RE:center seeks to develop programs or bring in established agencies to fill the gaps.
Mama Mentorship Project
RE:entry Mentorship Project
The RE:entry Mentorship Project is a regional support system that promotes successful reintegration of formerly incarcerated individuals in a way that improves community safety by reducing criminal behavior. This program provides supportive services, information referrals, and mentor pairing for individuals returning to the community from incarceration. These supportive services and personal guidance empower these individuals to overcome potential barriers and achieve their goals.
Hunger Relief Project
The RE:center is a United Food Bank site. We offer nonperishable food boxes and special grocery items every week. Throughout normal daily operations, clients can receive an emergency meal. Our soup kitchen serves an average of 80-100 people per day. We serve our delicious, homemade meals restaurant-style to create a unique experience for community members. Going above and beyond the traditional food bank meals, the RE:center desires to serve our community with excellence.
For the most up-to-date feeding hours, please call.
WORK EXPERIENCE PROJECT
The RE:center partners with Arizona@Work and AARP to offer two work experience opportunities. These work experience opportunities provide on-site, hands-on job training and practical experience for those with employment gaps. Arizona@Work offers a three-month work experience (WEX) program for those between the ages 18 to 24. AARP offers the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) for unemployed, low-income individuals over the age of 55. Individuals can increase skills and build self-confidence, while earning a modest income. Based on their employment interests and goals, participants may also receive supportive services and skills training through an educational institution. This experience most often leads to permanent employment with local businesses and agencies.
