Historic Pima County Interfaith WINS
Pima County Interfaith has leveraged over 100 million dollars on behalf of Pima County families since its founding in 1990. This does not include its work on many other issues (helping to pass Medicaid Expansion in Arizona, defending and expanding public school and adult education funding, advocating successfully for affordable housing, neighborhood development, energy efficiency, and immigrant integration). As a society, over the years we became complacent. The public figured we had won our battles and our work was done, but we should have paid attention because some of the very same issues have surfaced. We invite you to join us in creating a economically sound and vibrant community.
