This series was created to continue Mike McQuaid’s mission to end homelessness here in the Valley. McQuaid believed the problem could be solved, but he also knew it would take a community working together to achieve this goal. STN, in collaboration with the Human Services Campus and ASU’s Action Nexus, is working to shine a light on the challenges and, more importantly, the solutions.
IN THIS EPISODE
Last month, the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust awarded $123 million in surprise grants to 71 nonprofit organizations. This marked the largest single-day grant initiative in Arizona’s history. We will be joined live in studio by Piper Trust President & CEO Mary Jane Rynd and Wildfire Executive Director Cynthia Zwick for a look at the process and power of philanthropy.
Plus, we will meet Shante Saulsberry, founder and CEO of Janice’s Women’s Center, and hear how a chance encounter at a bus stop set her on a new course to help women impacted by domestic violence.
