Health Equity

When my children and I became homeless, it felt like everything was falling apart. We went from not knowing where we would eat, sleep, shower, or do laundry, to going into PASS where my children felt safe, and I could focus on getting us back on our feet.

Mental Health

My role as the mental health specialist gave me a unique opportunity to interact and provide mental health support to girls and staff throughout the summer ... [giving them] the freedom to experience camp in way that was special and fulfilling to them individually.

– Britnee Green, Mental Health Specialist with Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine Council, Inc.

National Multiple Sclerosis Society

We estimate that roughly 60% of those living with MS connect with the National MS Society at some point so it is safe to say that thousands of Arizonans benefit from the support AZ Blue provides to us.

– Chris Marshall, AZ/NM Chapter President, National Multiple Sclerosis Society
