Matt and Jennifer Armer are small business owners in Ahwatukee. As our business began to grow we saw a need emerging in the community. I found myself meeting families with children facing extreme medical issues and struggling to find ways to meet their financial obligations with looming medical bills growing. I volunteered to organize yard sales, blood drives, and other fundraising efforts to assist these families. Matt approached me with the idea of starting our own non-profit organization.
