Annual Report

A WORD FROM THE CEO

Southern Arizona Book Heroes is to uniquely bring awareness to mental health in children, and the community through literacy and volunteer opportunities, influencing the course of history for generations to come.

We are a community-based organization and believes that its programs and services should be available to everyone, however the primary focus is on our vulnerable youth.

Southern Arizona Book Heroes believes youth are the future and therefore need more attention and focus than other areas.
