The Erik Hite Foundation Child Care Center is currently serving 20 children of law enforcement and emergency services personnel fulltime; and 13 children on a drop-in/as-needed basis, when temporary changes in childcare arrangements occur. They have opened at 5:30 am and closed at 11 pm on many days to accommodate the needs of their families. They have been open every single Saturday for those families who have needed it.
The EHF Childcare Center has a waiting list of ten babies, three who are not yet born. Though the foundation received donations to establish itself, they are currently raising $20,000 to expand their infant and toddlers’ rooms to accommodate more families. They are also improving their playground to make it more safe and fun for the children. The Tucson SWAT Team and one of the Eagle Scout Projects have offered to help with construction. The center would also like to add more security equipment to the facility, including additional cameras and another coded pad for the front door.

The Erik Hite Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was established in memory of slain Police Officer Erik Hite, to provide a childcare 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 of these men and women who serve and protect our community.
