GAP Family Center

The heart of GAP is to preserve the dignity of every child and family we serve, providing them with love, stability and every opportunity to succeed. We believe generational cycles of poverty, addiction and a growing foster care system can be healed One Life at a time. Breaking these cycles leads to a healthier family and and creates transformed communities.

GAP Community Warehouse

GAP has cared for thousands of foster children over the past 20 years. But our true desire is to stop cycles of poverty and abuse before the children ever enter the system. Poverty is the #1 indicator of abuse, neglect, and children entering the foster system. This doesn’t just impact a select few. It affects everyone. When a family has broken apart, it has a ripple effect out into the community that is both painful and expensive. GAP wants to be so much more than a band aid approach to the problems in our community. The Community Warehouse provides food and needed products to families already on the edge to help prevent them from reaching a crisis that causes their children to be removed and their family to break apart.

GAP Kitchen & Job Training

GAP’s new Campus of Hope is situated in the 85705 zip code because it is in the top ten poorest areas for all of Arizona. Many families in this area struggle with poverty, food insecurity, and a lack of resources. GAP receives weekly food donations from grocery stores. The GAP Kitchen was created as a solution to food waste, to extend the life of perishable donations that would otherwise be thrown away. Over 1000 meals weekly are provided for low income schools, shelters, and elderly shut-ins. The new kitchen on the Campus of Hope is being designed with the capacity to meet the needs of hundreds more children and struggling individuals, providing them with what could be the only warm, nutritious meal they will have that day.

Second Chance Job Training on the Campus of Hope

These job training programs exist to provide free quality education to under-employed, unemployed, and in-need individuals 18 and older. Graduates are mostly older adults, even into their 60’s, looking for a new beginning. Most of our students come from dysfunctional homes including the foster system, nearly all have a history of substance abuse or incarceration. For each of them, this truly marks a second chance for them to restore their lives.

Customized Training Room

The new larger training room will be used by culinary, auto tech, warehouse, and any other second chance students. GAP’s holistic approach includes weekly life skills and financial skills classes to ensure long-term stability and success.

Culinary Expansion

The new kitchen will include individualized workstations for students. Plans for expansion of the Culinary program include 2 tracks for basic skills and more advanced management skills, bakery chef, and retail experience with a Grab & Go restaurant.

Other Workforce Opportunities

Auto Tech job training will continue in partnership with MPG Automotive, and plans are being made for an Auto Body track with the building currently on campus that will allow for this opportunity. Warehouse job training will include practical warehouse training, box truck and pallet jack certification, and a future opportunity for CDL license.
