 The first five years of life are the most critical in a child’s development. At Southwest Human Development, our services improve lives and help families by supporting young children and their caregivers during this important time. 


 In partnership with families, we provide children with the care, attention and support needed to set them on a path to success in school and life, and help them reach their fullest capabilities.

2018 MAKERS Success Story

The 2018 winning team from Brophy developed a new hinge system for our chairs that is currently in use by Sophia, helping her build strength and stability in her neck. This allows her to be more independent and survey the world around her! 


Sophia is a musically inclined 3-year-old who's adored by her mother Bianca as a little "rock star." Being a rock star in Sophia's world means much more than having a passion for music, but also embodies a determination to live life to the fullest each and every day.
