The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation awarded Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona a $2.5 million grant in August 2017 to purchase a new building, allowing the nonprofit to double its physical space and provide funding for two of its signature programs. Free Arts has selected architecture and environmental design firm Studio Ma to design and oversee the renovation of the new building at 352 E. Camelback Road in Phoenix. The new building will be named The Bob & Renee Parsons Center for Hope & Healing.

The 10,500-square-foot building will be renovated to accommodate onsite programming, staff and volunteer growth and create a community center that can be utilized for training, workshops and events. The goal of the multi-phased project is to transform the building into a highly functional and iconic location. Studio Ma says construction on the first phase will begin in the summer of 2018 and the entire renovation will be completed by mid to late 2020.

Bob and Renee Parsons have been longtime supporters of Free Arts, and through The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation have granted more than $3 million to the organization over the past six years.
