Family Stability Project
In 2013, United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona partnered with the Siemer Institute for Family Stability (SIFS) in a nation-wide movement addressing the issue of students’ learning being disrupted by financial crisis and homelessness. The goal of this project is to support families in financial crisis so their children can remain in the same school, giving them the best chance at receiving a quality education. The project creates change by addressing and resolving the issues that push families to the brink of homelessness.
