Families that struggle with modern-day issues in Tucson have a home in Our Family Services, strengthened by a recent merger.

In July, Our Family Services merged with New Beginnings for Women and Children.

"By combining the two organizations we were actually able to strengthen services, particularly our continuum of care for homeless youth, young adults, and families," says Executive Director Patti Caldwell.

In addition to providing services for the homeless and those beleaguered by addiction, Our Family Services offers programs for children who may have been removed from their homes by Arizona Child protective Services.

The organization also assists families in finding affordable housing and seniors who wish to maintain their independence.
