2020 Impact Report – Hualapai Tribe Region

First Things First partners with families and communities to help our state’s youngest children prepare for kindergarten and beyond.

Many young children in Arizona face challenges that threaten their healthy development and learning. In the Hualapai Tribe Region, there are 197 children (under age 6) with 49% living in poverty.

Here is how FTF is working to support young children and their families in this region.

“The FTF Hualapai Tribe Regional Partnership Council invests in providing support and guidance to parents to learn positive parenting practices that set the foundation of lifelong learning behavior and health for our Hualapai children to be successful.”

Hualapai Tribe

The boundaries of the FTF Hualapai Tribe Region are the same as those of the Hualapai Indian Reservation. Although the reservation includes lands in Coconino and Yavapai counties, most of the population live in or near Peach Springs in Mohave County. Separate pieces of the reservation lie to the south of Peach Springs, near Valentine and Wikieup. The FTF Hualapai Tribe Region includes Legislative District 7. (Legislative districts are not necessarily congruent with regional boundaries.)
