About Us:

PICK is a 501(c)(3)

nonprofit charitable

organization dedicated to

serving inner city children

and families.

All PICK's services and

programs are offered to the

public free of charge and

without regard to race,

color, religion or national


The Phoenix Inner City Kids Program (PICK) was

birthed in 1988 by Teen

Challenge of Arizona and

was well known throughout

the valley in the 1990's as

the Flintstone Kids Program.

In August of 2002 PICK

obtained status as a 501(c)

(3) non-profit charitable

organization and assumed

the name Phoenix Inner

City Kids.




PICK's mission is to

introduce youth to Jesus

Christ and to empower

them to become all that

God intended them to be.

We seek to show God's

love in practical ways and

to come alongside in

support of the family as

needed. In so doing we

strive to bring hope to the

hopeless, to build trust and

unity in the community, and

to ensure a positive and

healthy future for the next generation.


PICK Christ Center

provides an atmosphere

where youth can grow and

develop into confident

young adults, gain self

esteem, and develop

creativity. The center seeks

to provide opportunities for

youth that will help them to

find and develop their

natural, God given talent

and ability.

26th Annual Summer Camp!


Many thanks to those who sponsored kids for PICK Camp at Circle K Ranch in Dolores, Colorado this summer.  Your gift of sponsorship brought joy to an inner city youth and provided fun, excitement, and a lifetime of cherished memories! 

PICK Camp is a wonderful experience for kids from the projects and neighborhoods of inner city Phoenix.  Each day
is filled with exciting activities in the midst of the beautiful scenery and breathtaking views
of the San Juan mountains of 
southern Colorado. 
Thank you for investing in the life of a child! 

Your Gift Changed Lives!

PICK camp provides opportunities for kids to experience God's love in powerful, life changing ways.   

Many youth today are hurting and searching for love and encouragement.  PICK's mission is to introduce them to the love of Christ.  Jesus is the One who loves them most and the only One who can truly empower them to reach their highest potential and fulfill their greatest dreams.
Over the last twenty six years PICK Camps have encouraged hundreds of inner city youth to make positive life choices and to abstain from drugs, alcohol, and negative peer influence. 
Thank you so much for partnering with us in support 
of the next generation!
 Together We Are Making A Difference! 

Two Special Events   



During our week at camp PICK was honored to join with Circle K Ranch in giving tribute to some Wounded Warrior Veterans who visited the ranch for a day of recreation. Thank you Circle K Ranch for allowing us to have the opportunity to honor to those who sacrificed much to keep our families and our nation safe.

The Circle K Ranch surprised PICK Camp one evening with the special honor of a steak banquet.  Each group of counselors and kids passed through an archway of prayer and was led to a beautifully set table where they were served a meal family style by a member of the ranch staff.
Thank you Circle K for "Loving Us To Life" 
with the love of the Lord!
May the Lord bless you, Cannon Family, as you have
been a blessing to so many others!


The New Main Entrance at PICK Christ Center

  Thank You To All Who Have Invested Time And Resources
To See The Vision Of PICK Christ Center Come To Life!

New Boys Restroom
New Girls Restroom
This has been another exciting season at PICK as we have installed a new glass front entryway on the south side of the building facing Jefferson Street which will be the main administrative entrance into the building.  We are also in the final stages and nearing completion of two much needed full size restrooms.  Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to those who have invested time, skill, and resources to complete these major renovations.  By the grace of God and the loving kindness of His people PICK Christ Center has become a reality!

PICK has been a faith ministry for twenty five years.  We have never been underwritten through grants or corporate funding.  We move forward one step at a time as the Lord provides. We are and have continually been a miracle in progress!   Over and over we have seen the faithfulness of the Lord as we go forward in confidence knowing that:  "He who began the good work in us will be faithful to complete it!"
