CENTRAL PIMA REGIONAL PARTNERSHIP COUNCIL
The Central Pima region includes the central portion of the City of Tucson and the entire City of South Tucson. Its boundaries reach north to the Rillito River, west to the Tucson Mountains, east to Harrison Road, and south to Irvington Road. According to the 2010 Census, 35,812 children birth through age five reside in the Central Pima region, with the largest population of young children living in the 85705 and 85713 zip codes.
The Central Pima region is recognized for its strong core infrastructure of services. In many instances the region serves as the entry point to supportive resources for the entire county. Although there is pre-existing infrastructure, the early childhood development and health service delivery system is fractured. Building upon the existing groundwork, and strengthening partnerships to ensure that services are seamlessly delivered without duplication, is crucial to the Central Pima Regional Partnership Council. To do this the Central Pima Regional Partnership Council has worked to connect and build upon the existing structures of services, while adding new and innovative supports that impact young children, families and the greater community. The funding designated to the Central Pima region helps ensure families, teachers, and caregivers who work with young children have the tools they need to support the development, health and early education of all our young children.
