Family Housing Resources, Inc. (“FHR”), a support organization of the Industrial Development Authority of the County of Pima (the “Pima IDA”), whose mission is to create lasting solutions to help individuals and families reach financial freedom through housing support, education, and partnership.
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 the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona (CFBSA) $100,000 in support of its $4.5 million renovation. Central to the renovation is the installation of an industrial-sized cooler-freezer to better preserve perishable food; redesigning of the parking area to provide semi-trucks with safe access to the cold storage area; and the expansion of the volunteer area and client parking lot. CFBSA’s goal is to complete the renovation by September 2020 in order to better serve the needs of the community.
