The Southern Arizona Social Service Alliance (SASSA) was founded for the purpose of giving social service ministries and organizations an opportunity for fellowship, collaboration, professional development and prayer.
According to a University of Arizona study titled Making Action Possible in Southern Arizona (MAP Dashboard) there were 3,766 non-profit organizations registered in Pima County in 2015. The majority of these focused on social service needs. This amounts to 1 non-profit per 265 residents. There are likely more in 2019. With 3,766+ non-profits competing for the same resources, the same volunteers and the same media attention there are likely many fine, well-deserving non-profits struggling to maintain solvency and mission integrity.
The Southern Arizona Social Service Alliance's goal is to bring non-profit social service ministries and organizations together once a month so we can learn from each other, get to know each other, find ways we can work with each other and above all pray with each other. Together we are much stronger than going it alone.
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Ecc 4:9-10 (NLT)
