For Kids:
The Paul Sweitzer Reading Room started in 1996 and is supervised daily. Children gather after they have eaten to receive help with reading & homework. Children are also offered a variety of educational computer programs, games and crafts.

The mission of the Flagstaff Family Food Center is to provide wholesome meals in a safe and pleasant environment as well as help children with reading, homework, and social skills.

Since 1991, FFFC has served over 810,400 hot dinners. They are open every day of the year from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. There is no documentation of need required. They do not serve anyone who appears drunk, on drugs, or who creates a disturbance. 

Many of their clients are employed, usually for minimum wage, and may have lost welfare benefits. Some live in motels without cooking facilities. Some are camping out or traveling and others are between jobs. Some of our clients eat here regularly, others move through the system until they can stabilize their lives. About 20% of their meals are served to children under the age of 16. Many are “at risk” kids from Sunnyside.  

At FFFC, they offer their clients not only a nutritious meal, but a chance to be treated with respect and dignity from caring staff and volunteers. 

The idea of caring for our own is what makes Flagstaff such a special place to live!

Peace Workshop International

Many of us have learned to communicate with messages that make it easy for others to perceive (or for us to hear) criticism, attack, demands and other challenging traits. These patterns contribute to pain and struggle in relationships, inaccuracies and inefficiency in business, resistance and rebellion in education, conflict and violence between groups, dissatisfaction and turnover with employees, and distance and disintegration in families. 

Flagstaff Center for Compassionate Communication offers solutions to these communication patterns with Nonviolent Communication
SM (NVC). Our NVC training has two main goals: 1) to develop communication skills for clear, accurate, and passionate expression of one's own wants and needs in a way that increases the likelihood that those needs will get met in harmony with others' needs; 2) to develop skills for accurately hearing what others are needing even when they express themselves in aggressive, defensive, or in an otherwise polluted manner.

Our services include: 1) Individualized Trainings and Seminars; 2) NVC Skills, Cooperation, and Community Building for Youth; 3) Adult Public Classes, Practice Groups, and Retreats; 4) NVC Coaching Sessions for Individuals and Families; 4) Management and Personnel Consultation and 5) Mediation.

The Foster Grandparent Program recruits low income adults to be "Foster Grandparents" to children with special or exceptional needs. Children do not live with the foster grandparents, instead the foster grandparents volunteer with schools, Head Start centers, hospitals, nurseries, and other organizations that serve children. Foster Grandparent volunteers receive a small government stipend of $2.55 an hour to enable them to volunteer, meal and mileage reimbursement, secondary insurance coverage while volunteering and other benefits. Grandparents can help children learn their colors and numbers, learn to read, learn how to behave in social situations, and learn how to become good citizens.
