MIKID Buys Tucson Learning Facility and Office
TUCSON, AZ — MIKID – Mentally Ill Kids in Distress, Inc. (Dick Geasland, CEO) purchased a 6,400- square-foot building, located at 925 E. Bilby Road in Tucson, from OneAZ Credit Union for $375,000 ($58.60 PSF).
MIKID is a non-profit, licensed Outpatient Clinic, Family-Run organization in the State of Arizona and contracts with all the Regional Behavioral Health Authorities (RBHAs) in the State as well as Gila River Indian Community and the AZ Community Rehabilitation Services Provider to provide behavioral health services to youth and families throughout AZ. MIKID currently has offices in Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma, Casa Grande, and Prescott Valley. In addition, MIKID offers in-home and community supports across the state.
MIKID provides support, education, and skills development to families and their children as well as youth and young adults who are experiencing mental health and behavior challenges throughout Arizona. This is accomplished through MIKID staff providing one-on-one family support, peer support, health promotion, support groups, training and education, both individual and community-based living skills, respite, and connecting families and individuals with natural supports in the community. MIKID’s approach is grounded in the focus of assisting families and youth to have a strong and respected voice in the services they receive, the systems that provide those services, and their community at large. These services are unique in that those staff providing many of these services are family members, parents, and young adults who have personal “lived experience” in dealing with behavioral health needs. MIKID requires all staff who provide services to the parents to have “lived experience”.
The property was formerly a Children’s Success Academy and buyer will use for office and learning facility. It has a large meeting hall, 12 classrooms, full working kitchen, fully fenced with four 20-foot wide gate entry points. Administrative offices, and two large bathrooms.
M.I.K.I.D. has an office already in Tucson and will be relocating from 4500 E Speedway once the build out is complete.
