Arivaca Human Resource was founded in 1988 by a group of highly motivated people who realized that we who live in Arivaca need to have the ways and means to help ourselves and each other. What started out as a hot meal program for seniors has grown into a resource for hundreds of people in Arivaca, providing food boxes, energy assistance, transportation, information, affordable clothing, and referral for any assistance we can't provide.
The mission of our agency is to improve our clients’ health, well-being, and stability by
providing food and clothing. Other essential services are provided via referral and support.
Who We Are
Arivaca Coordinating Council/Human Resource Group Inc. (ACC/HRGI) is a qualifying 501(c)3 charitable organization as designated by the State of Arizona and a licensed non-profit.
We were founded in 1988, originally as a hot meals program for seniors and operating out of the Old School House. We soon grew out of that facility and in 1990 we applied for a Community Development Block Grant and purchased Schwanderlich House, which we then updated to accommodate our hot meals program, which is cooked on site, and space for our pantry food program.
Since that time many innovative programs, as listed on this website, have been implemented. We work with various county and community organizations. Residents also assist with these programs by contributing time, funds. and donations of food and clothing. Our community has wonderful people who volunteer their time, whether it is cooking a meal, driving someone to the doctor or going to the food bank. We could not accomplish all that we do without this assistance. If you would like to volunteer or just get to know us, drop by our office for a chat and get acquainted…
