SARRC Announces Expansion to Scottsdale

From far south looking north

SARRC has announced plans to expand its footprint to Scottsdale, occupying space in the Paiute Neighborhood Center, a City of Scottsdale-operated community that features social, recreational, cultural, and educational programs and services. 

With a goal opening date of early summer, SARRC will initially feature two of its comprehensive intervention programs including the Comprehensive Behavioral Program—a program where one-on-one ABA-based treatment is implemented in the home and in the community, as well as the Community School—an inclusive preschool for both children with autism spectrum disorder and typically developing children ages 18 months to 5 years.

“We are grateful to our friends at the City of Scottsdale who have made SARRC’s newest campus possible,” said Daniel Openden, SARRC's President and CEO. “In 2019, we announced a bold vision of becoming a statewide organization by 2030, and through this supportive partnership, we are one step closer to realizing that vision.”

The South Scottsdale location was selected for several reasons including a welcoming, permanent environment for clients and their families; easy access to families; and ample space as the campus will also support administrative staff and feature multiple therapy rooms. 

“The Paiute Neighborhood Center offers an exceptional resource to neighboring areas and we are confident that SARRC’s presence will also provide valuable resources and services to these same families,” said Openden. "We look forward to being part of this thriving, diverse and supportive community."

Through the generous support of Executive Council Charities, a nonprofit dedicated to helping youth, SARRC’s Scottsdale Paiute Campus was selected as the organization’s Special Project for 2021—providing in-kind services that will greatly reduce construction and design costs through their professional connections. Council members are currently working with Cresa Project Management, RSP ArchitectsWillmeng Construction, and TRUEFORM landscape architecture studio, all of which are donating their services and helping to secure in-kind donations from construction and design firms to support needed renovations and updates throughout the campus.

The Scottsdale Paiute Campus marks SARRC’s fourth location with two campuses in Phoenix and one in Tempe.
