A local organization has received a significant grant that will help them make a difference.
Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse has received a $15,000 grant to build a new playground for guests at its emergency shelter in Tucson. Emerge provides domestic abuse crisis intervention and prevention, education, housing, advocacy, and other support services to women in need of a helping hand.
The funding makes it possible for Emerge to design, purchase and install a playground. This facility will be used by families receiving services at its shelter. While Emerge already has a playground at its shelter designed for older children, the new playground will be perfect for toddlers.
Groundbreaking on the new playground is anticipated this spring.
Emerge serves hundreds of children in its emergency shelter every year, with nearly half those kids being 4 years old and younger.
