On January 24, 2013, the Arizona Foundation for Behavioral Health presented a $2,000.00 scholarship to a high school senior from the Guadalupe community to assist them in attaining a higher education. This scholarship was presented to Karina Nieves, Tempe Union High School Senior, who wrote an essay expressing her desire to pursue a higher education and how she has personally overcome many trials and adversities in her life. Ms. Nieves has been accepted to Arizona State University and plans to pursue a degree in nursing.
This scholarship is in memory of José Solárez, long time board member of both the Arizona Foundation for Behavioral Health and the Arizona Behavioral Health Corporation. Mr. Solárez passed away in 2012. He will be remembered for his tireless efforts to improve the community of Guadalupe, his advocacy for behavioral health and “making a difference” in the lives of others.

The AFBH Board Gap Committee has identified a need to establish additional “Navigators” in the community based behavioral health delivery system. The navigator is an individual who assists a participant gain self-sufficiency and recovery through comprehensive service coordination linked with housing, health, treatment, federal benefits, employment and wellness supports. It has been shown that service coordination through the utilization of navigators assists in the successful recovery process of individuals with behavioral health needs. This project is the focus of the fundraising efforts of AFBH and consistent with its mission. With your support, the foundation will be able to fund this assistance to some of the most needy individuals.
