The FHR Cares Community Investment Fund was established in 2015 by Family Housing Resources, Inc., and FHR Cares, Inc. both 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, charitable organizations in Pima County, AZ. to further support FHR’s mission through offering funding support to partner organizations doing similar mission driven work in the community. In 2019 FHR Cares has awarded $475,000 in gifts to better Pima County and foster lasting community partnerships.
FHR Cares awarded El Rio Healthcare Foundation with $10,000 in sponsorship support for their El Rio Vecinos’ 6th Anniversary fundraising event, Viva Vecinos Block Party. Vecinos translates as neighbors, which is how El Rio Community Health Center was formed in 1970. It was through the cooperation and support of Tucson neighbors and several organizations that a true neighborhood, community, consumer-based health center was established downtown.
The Vecinos is a group of young professionals with a collective goal to help make a difference in our Tucson community. As stewards of this group, members work together to raise money and network with amazing young men and women to benefit El Rio and the Tucson Community. Their annual signature event is the Viva Vecinos Block Party, held annually in downtown Tucson.
“For over 49 years, El Rio Community Health Center has taken pride in empowering patients to take control of their health and make lifestyle changes to ensure a brighter future for themselves and their families. Your kindness positively impacts the health of our community.” Jill Rodriguez, Development Director, El Rio Foundation.
