Children’s Action Alliance — See Where the Candidates Stand on Issues

Each election cycle, Children’s Action Alliance and The Arizona Center for Economic Progress invite candidates for legislative office to complete a questionnaire on the policies that are important for children and our economy.

We help to connect voters with the candidates who share their priorities, and we are proud to provide non-partisan information to educate voters about the well-being of all Arizonans, especially children and families.

Questionnaires that were filled in and returned to CAA are listed in BOLD and hyperlinked.

As a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, we do not endorse candidates. Our role is to ask questions and provide you with answers as they have been submitted so you can choose who to support.

United Way of Northern Arizona — A Crowning Achievement — UWNA Grant Helps Launch New Shelter Service

United Way of Northern Arizona — A Crowning Achievement — UWNA Grant Helps Launch New Shelter Service

When COVID-19 made congregant shelter living a dangerous option for those experiencing homelessness, Flagstaff Shelter Services (FSS) stepped up by renting hotel rooms for their most immunocompromised clients. It was a successful – if expensive – way to continue to serve the homeless at the height of the pandemic.

It also led to an innovative idea: tap into funds available through the American Rescue Plan Act to acquire a hotel and rehab the units into emergency housing. With the support of the Arizona Department of Housing, FSS purchased a Route 66 hotel that years ago was the The Crown Motel and more recently operated as a Howard Johnsons.

Other groups helped support the launch of the new site, including the Forest Highlands Foundation and the Arizona Diamondback. A grant from United Way of Northern Arizona allowed FSS to hire a full-time manager for the new shelter complex, which is being renamed The Crown in a nod to the building’s history.
