On October 12th, CFSA’s Community Impact Team, along with members of our Philanthropy team, Marketing team, and Board of Trustees, visited four Tucson-based nonprofits: Youth On Their Own, The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures, Coyote Taskforce, and St. Luke’s Home. Each of these visits gave our team an opportunity to learn more about the nonprofits’ current activities, see the spaces where they work to meet their missions and connect with their hard-working teams.
Our team is grateful for the effort of these groups to make a difference for those they serve. Highlights of our trip included a tour of The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniature’s facilities, insight into future exhibits, and an opportunity to look-in on their exciting fall-break art and media classes for local students. At Coyote Taskforce, we were welcomed by a diverse and engaged peer-run community located at their Our Place Clubhouse, which operates self-directed voluntary work activities and job development for adults living with mental illnesses. Youth On Their Own’s soon-to-be-opened new facility off Country Club Road, also a recipient of a Nonprofit Solar Project grant in 2022, was an exciting preview of how the organization will increase its capacity to respond to the needs of unhoused youth in Tucson. Lastly, our visit to St. Luke’s Home provided our team with an up-close look at their almost-fully renovated assisted-living facility, which gives residents opportunities to maintain independence and lead fulfilling lives thanks to their staff.
