2008-09 Annual Report - Casa de los Niños

nnual Report
Luckily, there is Casa de los NiГ±os
“I can’t think of a more important contribution than to invest in the life of a child.”
-- Oscar de la Renta
From time to time, glaring headlines remind us that child abuse remains a serious issue
in Pima County. The man who shakes his girlfriend’s baby into a coma to stop her from
crying … the student who abandons a newborn on-campus … the couple that locks their
child in a closet so they can have a night on the town. These are horrendous stories. They
send chills through us all, but the sad truth is that child abuse happens every day – in every
corner of our community.
Did you know Pima County authorities investigate more than 650 cases of documented
child abuse each year?
Luckily, there is a place such as Casa de los NiГ±os. For more than 35 years, we have
provided a safe haven for abused and neglected children. On any given morning, between
35 and 45 kids will wake up in our shelter. We will give them a warm, safe home and as much
T.L.C. as they can take!
Less well known but no less important are the programs we provide children and families
long after abuse occurs. We have a mental health clinic for kids who have experienced or
witnessed violence. Our foster care network includes more than 120 foster homes.
Even less well-known is the array of services we offer families to help them avoid child
abuse in the first place. Our Nurse-Family Partnership program, funded by First Things First,
helps first-time moms get through pregnancy and delivery. Another new effort funded by
First Things First, Raising Healthy Kids, supports at-risk parents who are raising kids under
5. Our Parent Education program helps young parents recognize and address specific
Sadly, helping abused and neglected kids is a fulltime job. 24 hours a day. Every day of
the year. Luckily, there is a place such as Casa de los NiГ±os. These kids need us. They need
all of us. Thanks for caring, and for sharing with the children of Casa de los NiГ±os!

Dear Family and Friends:
Casa de los NiГ±os touches the lives of some 4,000 children a year, and on their behalf
I would like to say “Thank You All!” for keeping them in your hearts during the last 12
months. Thank you donors for the sacrifices you made, financially. Thank you volunteers
for sharing your talents with our children and staff. And thank you shoppers for making it a
great year at our popular Thrift Store!
You are all important members of our extended family, and never were you more
meaningful than in 2008-2009. As you know, the meltdown of the U.S. economy led to
record demand, jittery donors and huge cutbacks in state funding. Sadly, it was a Perfect
Storm that washed away many important programs. Fortunately, Casa de los NiГ±os survived.
And the reason we survived the storm? It was you!
This is not to say Casa de los NiГ±os is the same agency today that it was a year ago. We
were forced to close two programs when the legislature cut their funding. We experienced
layoffs. We “streamlined.”
We remained standing, though, and today we find ourselves uniquely positioned to
launch several new programs that will help the area’s children. We now offer at-risk mothers
a support system called Raising Healthy Kids. We are also a newly approved Nurse-Family
Partnership program, meaning we soon will manage a home nursing program to help firsttime moms manage their pregnancies and deliveries. We are expanding our infant mental
health program.
So while times are a-changin’, Casa de los Niños is changing with them. And with your
help, we will always “be there” for the children of Southern Arizona. Thanks for caring, and
Susie Huhn
Executive Director

for sharing with the kids of Casa de los NiГ±os!
Helping Kids Isn’t Child’s Play
Casa de los NiГ±os offers a number of programs designed to help children and families.
These programs are all about people … particularly the children we help every day. Meet
Monica, Willie, Liza and Lea:
Monica, herself a former foster child and now a divorced mother of three, voluntarily
brought 2-year-old Daniel to live at Casa de los Niños while she tried to save her home … and
her family. Monica had been laid off by a local retailer. She desperately needed to find work
because she did not want the kids to live in a shelter. Monica’s older children attend school,
but she had nowhere to leave Daniel when she interviewed for jobs. At Casa de los NiГ±os, she
knew, Daniel would be safe and well-taken-care-of. It was the only safety net she had.
351 children lived at our Crisis Shelter last year. The average stay was 40 days.
The average number of children in residence was 37 a night.
Willie was 6 when he first became a foster child. Neglected for years by a mother with
dependency issues, Willie had developed some issues of his own. He had a serious hearing
problem. He had a learning disability and an attention-deficit disorder. Fortunately, he then
met Bill and Adrienne – foster parents in the Casa de los Niños foster care network. They
drove 50 miles a day to make sure Willie could attend his regular school. They made sure his
various needs were addressed and treated by specialists. And when Willie’s mom proved her
determination to get a second chance, Bill and Adrienne helped her rebuild a relationship
with her son. That was two years ago, and Willie is now living a happy and healthy life with his
mom and two sisters. Not only did Bill and Adrienne save a child, they saved a family.
Casa de los NiГ±os manages and supports parents in 130 foster homes in
Pima and Pinal counties. We cared for 409 children last year.
Liza had seen a lot more of life than a 3-year-old should see. Her father drank, and
4 | 2008 - 2009 Casa de los NinГµs Annual Report
was combative when he did. He sometimes confronted Liza’s mom, and occasionally Liza
herself. When a concerned friend phoned a domestic abuse hotline, Liza was removed from
her home and placed with her grandparents. Her parents soon divorced, but Liza began
demonstrating emotional problems. Her CPS case worker referred Liza, her grandmother
and mom to Great Beginnings – the infant mental health program at Casa de los Niños. After
a thorough assessment, the child and both adults began weekly therapy designed to redefine and re-build the relationship between mother and child. Work still needs to be done,
but the scars are beginning to heal.
Great Beginnings is a mental health program for infants and children under
5 who have seen or experienced trauma. We provided assessments and
treatment for 183 kids last year.

Lea was 19 when she delivered twin daughters at 26 weeks. Eva and Rosa were both born with medical
issues that included vision problems, digestive problems, speech problems and cognitive delays. Early on,
value of our new Raising Healthy Kids program funded by First Things First. The RHK team has provided Lea
with bus passes, transportation to doctor’s appointments, home safety assessments and a monthly trip to the
Food Bank. Lea also gets medical referrals when needed for her girls. Thanks to Casa de los NiГ±os, she has a
support system that is helping her keep the family together.
Launched late last spring, Raising Healthy Kids is a program that provides a support
system for at-risk parents with children under the age of 5.

Casa de los NiГ±os helped Lea learn how to care for her very small children. More recently, she has learned the
Casa de los NiГ±os Foundation
If Casa de los NiГ±os is focused on making the most of today, the Casa de los NiГ±os
Foundation has a different goal in mind. Our Foundation worries about tomorrow, and ways
to make sure the doors stay open as long as there are children who need us.
Established in 1988, the Casa de los NiГ±os Foundation invites donations from friends
who are interested in the long-term health of the organization. Trustees also manage the
investments that form our reserve. This portfolio amounts to a “rainy day” fund that could
become critical if state budget cutbacks and a stagnant economy jeopardize the care we
offer our children.
As a general practice, donations that come in the form of wills and bequests are
forwarded to the Casa de los NiГ±os Foundation and become part of our reserves. For
more than 20 years, these funds have enabled the agency to adapt to an ever-changing
We have a number of named funds which honor friends and relatives. Two new funds
were established this year. One is the Juan AgustГ­n Perez Morales Memorial Fund. He was
a Mexican orphan who did not let his unfortunate childhood stop him. When he died last
year, Agnese Haury wished to honor her friend by establishing a fund in his name at Casa
de los NiГ±os.
Another new fund is the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Endowment, a gift from the
sisters’ Provencial Council. It honors the founder of Casa de los Niños, Sister Kathleen Clark,
CSJ. Named funds managed by the Casa de los NiГ±os Foundation include:

It would be stretching a point only slightly to suggest Casa de los NiГ±os has been
“Tucson’s baby” since the day it opened in 1973. Truth be known, community support
goes back even farther than that. When Sister Kathleen Clark went to City Hall to obtain
the agency’s first permit, she did not have the $49 needed for fees. Staff members in the
Planning Department quickly passed the hat to raise the needed amount. So it began, and
the people of Tucson have been with us ever since.
Preliminary figures from the 2008-2009 fiscal year show that 27 cents of every dollar we
spent came from friends in the community. Private donations, private grants, special events
and Thrift Store sales provided the agency with more than $1.6 million. What is more, a
caring cadre of Casa de los NiГ±os volunteers donated 16,128 hours of time.
We couldn’t do it without you, and can’t thank you enough! The preliminary financials
on this page represent activity in the 12 months ending June 30. On the pages that follow,
you will see many of those who belong to our extended family. These are the friends and
neighbors who gave cash donations of $200 and more during the 2008-2009 fiscal year.
Again, thank you all!
