in 1968, Civitan was established in Williams, Arizona as "Camp Civitan" by a group of dedicated volunteers for individuals with disabilities. Parents and volunteers were driven by the belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the unique joy of summer camp-regardless of their abilities. "Camp Civitan" created one of the first year-round camping experiences in Arizona with extracurricular activities for the disabled.
In 2003, Civitan Foundation expanded its program menu to encompass educational and vocational activities. With programs year-round, we offer: Camp Civitan, Respite Care, Recreation, Home-Based services, Community Outreach, Disabiltiy Education, Day Treatment Program for Children and Adults, a Thrift Store, Vocational/Job Training and Placement, Nutrition Education, Youth Volunteer Programs, Civitan Learning Center, and an After School Program for at-risk youth at our Thunderbirds Teen Center.
In 2013, Civitan unveiled "Civitan Village," supported by experts in the field of culinary, media, the arts, sports and health and technology.
Civitan Foundation will see through the eyes of those whose lives we affect, identifying unmet needs and producing innovative and lasting solutions. We will bring to this task all of our experience and knowledge as the unique individuals we are.
