Unidas Award to Southern Arizona Senior Pride
Unidas, the award-winning after-school teen program run by the Women’s Foundation of Southern Arizona (WFSA), has awarded $5,000 in funding to Southern Arizona Senior Pride, a community organization dedicated to serving the LGBTQ+ community.
The award, generously sponsored by Buffalo Exchange, allows Southern Arizona Senior Pride to deliver programming to older adults and people with disabilities who are isolated or homebound.
WFSA’s Director of Program Engagement, Desirée Maultsby noted that the Unidas teens were inspired by Southern Arizona Senior Pride’s commitment to diversity. “We know that representation matters at all stages of human development. The stories shared regarding the unique social and emotional services provided to this population of our community truly spoke to the hearts of our Unidas participants,” said Maultsby.
