The community is invited to participate in a human chain to carry (hand-over-hand) the flag to the newly installed flag pole at Arrowhead Point, where it will be permanently displayed as a point of pride for residents and visitors alike.

Glendale Chamber Supports the
Arizona Career Readiness Credential
In partnership with ARIZONA@WORK, the Glendale Chamber of Commerce supports the Arizona Career Readiness Credential (ACRC), the Governor’s program to upskill the workforce. We ask employers to join us in recognizing the ACRC at acrc.az.gov.

Arizona’s employers have made it known repeatedly that they have difficulty finding job candidates with the foundational academic and employability “soft” skills needed for success in their businesses. During the four years of work soliciting the opinions of Arizona employers (large and small, across the state, from all sectors) one theme emerged: the most widespread concerns of our employers were about basic skills like work ethic, critical thinking, communication, applied mathematics, and reading comprehension... The ACRC initiative develops and validates mastery of those skills.

Treasure House Welcomes First Residents to Unique
Active Living Community for Young Adults
with Disabilities 
Treasure House began as the vision of Kurt and Brenda Warner out of love for their son Zachary — who was unable to receive the kind of care that would enable him to live a more fulfilling and independent life with the resources available to him in Arizona.

Kurt and Brenda admired the supportive living community Zachary was able to experience out of state and wanted to bring the concept to their home state of Arizona, creating a space that focused on respect and community and allowed residents to live more meaningful lives that allowed them to gain independence and contribute to society...

Now, Treasure House is welcoming its first cohort of six residents to the unique nonprofit apartment community in Glendale, Ariz.

Camp Paz: A Safe Place to Begin Healing
While at this overnight camp, children ages 6-17 and adults are divided into groups to take part in activities, including music, animal interactions, humor and art. Themes of the weekend include trust, vulnerability, interpersonal relationships, guilt, anger, fear, family dynamics, memories, hopes and dreams.

Children grieve differently than adults and their grief process is sometimes misunderstood. Often children learn best from other children who share their experience. Camp Paz provides a safe place where friendships are created and healing begins.
