The Erik Hite Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was established to provide a child care center and family outreach programs for the children of Law Enforcement and Emergency Services personnel. The program serves both commissioned and non-commissioned personnel from agencies such as the Tucson Police Department, Pima County Sheriff's Department, DPS, US Border Patrol, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Fire Department, and Active Duty Military personnel. We want to serve and care for their families following godly principles close to the heart of Erik, as these men and women serve and protect our community.
