Everything we do at Keogh is aimed at empowering people to reach a level of health and security necessary to become self-sustaining, productive members of our community. Our trained, bilingual staff do this primarily by utilizing mobile Internet technology to help residents cut through the red tape and processing times associated with applying for government-funded assistance programs like the Arizona Healthcare Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps) and the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.

Our outreach specialists have touched the lives of 1,762 people this year. Since opening our doors in 2003, we have helped over 175,000 people find affordable healthcare and other services. For more information, contact us at 602-266-0397 or via e-mail.
