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.

On June 2nd, 2008 Officer Erik Hite succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained the previous day by a suspect who had wounded a Pima County Sheriff's Department deputy.

The suspect had fired a rifle into the homes of two neighbors and then fled as the first responding deputy arrived at the location. As the deputy pursued him, the suspect opened fire and wounded him.


The Erik Hite Foundation can only achieve it's goals with the assistance of generous donations from members of our community. Without these donations, serving these families would not be possible.
