On Tuesday, April 14, 2015, over 50 community leaders, stakeholders, volunteers and friends of UPWARD celebrated at a Groundbreaking for a newly expanded Campus Project scheduled to be completed in July 2016.
The new campus will include an additional 20,000 square feet of mostly program space. CEO Doug Carter later said, “This new campus will increase our capacity to serve more children with special needs in our Private Day School. In addition, we will be adding an Integrated Infant Childcare Program and doubling the capacity of the Adult Day Training Program.”
Carter went on to say “This is a Historical Event for Upward. We are one of the oldest nonprofit organizations in Arizona, serving children with disabilities since 1958. The newly expanded campus will ensure Upward will continue to serve some of our community’s most vulnerable children and young adults for generations to come.”
We are grateful for the support we have received from numerous Individuals, Foundations, and Corporations to make this dream a reality.
