Connecting to Serve
Making Positive Change in our Community
Connecting to Serve (CTS) was founded in 2007 with a simple but unique concept - "empower" individuals who want to lend a hand to those in need. Since that time we have been assisting community "advocates" to identify challenges, build coalitions and mobilize resources in order to strengthen our community while addressing critical needs.

Through our Ahwatukee Community Network (ACN) we are helping to facilitate creative and cost-effective solutions to identified problems across all sectors of our community.  By working with a growing network of volunteers and partnerships with other organizations, key issues are being addressed: Foster Care, homelessness, hunger, financial distress, resources for older adults and caregivers, inter-generational programs for children and seniors and even employment assistance!

Please read our exciting Success Stories below and find out how you can help make Ahwatukee a better place to live. We welcome you to "Empower, Engage and Connect" by joining us today. Thank you.

We are Better Together!

True Stories of a Community
Working Together

The following are just a few of the accomplishments of "Heroes" within Ahwatukee. These citizens are taking on some of the community's toughest challenges and developing solid solutions - without City or State funding.

Foster Care: 
This newly formed advocacy group sponsored 57 children in foster care over Christmas and provided them with gifts and  clothing.

Hunger: Two community gardens have been established in order to provide food to local pantries serving those in need.

Encore Retirees: These retired volunteers are helping children to improve their math and reading skills. 

Senior Advocacy: Last November, thanks to the Senior Advocacy Group of Ahwatukee (SAGA), close to 200 seniors and caregivers were provided free educational sessions on important area resources for older adults and caregivers.

The list goes on and on. These successes, and many others, were accomplished by "real" people with sensible ideas for solving "real" problems. 

Be part of the solution - we need more Hero's - like You.
