Grant Gives Emerge a New Playground

Grant Gives Emerge a New Playground

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 Let’s Play Community Construction Grant was made possible by the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and the nonprofit KaBOOM!

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.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
