Welcome to the Cochise and eastern Santa Cruz Resource Guide sponsored and maintained by the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona.
This guide contains information on a variety of services and programs offered by agencies in Cochise and eastern Santa Cruz counties to assist and serve our growing populations. In addition, sections have been added to the guide that are meant to assist those providing services and outreach within these communities.
View Resource Guide or you can download the APP to your smart phone. The guide offers a search feature, resources by community, you can change the font size and view the guide in English or Spanish. There is also a feature to add or update a resource. We always welcome your feedback.
This is a living document that is continuously updated. If your agency is listed, please review your listing for accuracy. If you know of a new community resource or have a question, please email Susan Richards.
The Cochise County At Risk Registration Program serves as a way to capture the needs of our community. This program is designed for anyone who may need assistance during an emergency evacuation or for anyone who would require special medical considerations during an emergency. Once registered, first responders will be better equipped to assist you during these events.
Community Health Assessment
CHSS embarked on a collaborative approach to conduct the 2016 assessment, partnering with the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona, Benson Community Hospital, Copper Queen Community Hospital and Northern Cochise Community Hospital to bring together residents and community leaders, nonprofit and social service agencies, governmental institutions, and federally qualified community health centers to harness their collective resources, energy and expertise to identify and prioritize the major issues threatening the health and well-being of Cochise County residents.
Community Health Improvement Plan
Primary and secondary data were collected and reviewed, including county-specific Medicaid utilization data. The community themes and strengths were assessed by conducting a survey of more than 2,400 community residents, health system partners, and other health and social service professionals. To understand the forces of change in Cochise County, a series of webinars was conducted with key informants representing major communities of interest including education leaders, elected officials and health care providers. A fourth webinar was held for key informants representing vulnerable populations that often experience greater health disparities including the elderly, border health experts, domestic violence advocates and LGBTQ advocates.
Through this assessment and data collection process, three community health priorities surfaced. These priorities are supported by the data, and they were echoed by community members and public health professionals.
