This program allows people to purchase bricks for the pathway to show their support for the New Foundation AZ. Each brick costs $75 and can be engraved with a personal message. The personalized brick will then be placed on the pathway, which is located at the front of the New Foundation AZ’s campus.
In addition to the clinical programs, the therapeutic environment helps nurture the “whole person.” This includes art and pet therapy, writing programs, job readiness training, and holistic and team recreation.
According to New Foundation AZ spokespeople, past supporters have used the bricks to honor a loved one, purchased a brick as a gift, or bought a brick as part of corporate sponsorship. The bricks are a standard size; the New Foundation AZ provides the brick to be placed in the Pathway to Success. Supporters will have three lines of text with up to 15 characters per line.
“This is a great way for supporters of the New Foundation AZ to physically show our clients and their families that you believe in their success,” said Erika Heckman, the New Foundation AZ’s chief operations officer. “And if you prefer to remain anonymous, you could even just include a quote or phrase that will inspire the young people here.”
