On February 27th, 2017 Cenpatico Integrated Care, the Regional Behavioral Health Authority for Southern Arizona recognized Easter Seals Blake Foundation as one of only three Centers of Excellence in Southern Arizona! This honor recognizes organizations that provide the highest levels of service, quality, and leadership.
Key Standards of a Center of Excellence include:
1. Easy Access
2. World Class Customer Service Built on a Culture of Engagement and Wellness
3. Comprehensive Care
4. Excellent Outcomes
5. Excellent Value
A Behavioral Health Center of Excellence is known by the entire community as a great place to get care and a great place to work. A BHCOE offers easy access to affordable, comprehensive care for persons experiencing behavioral health issues. Clients experience respectful, self-directed, team-based, and holistic care that addresses their problems and achieves outcomes important to them. Excellence is created by each staff member who has a heartfelt connection to their community and the people they serve, based on a deep understanding of trauma, best clinical practices, and an unshakable commitment to resiliency and recovery.
Meeting this definition is a high bar. It is not something that comes from passing a written test or a surveyor’s review. It begins with building a great team that is able to achieve high marks on a set of core elements, which leads to recognition by the community as a great place to get care and a great place to work.
We are very proud of our exceptional Behavioral Health Services staff for receiving the Center of Excellence honor and value all their hard work, dedication and the heartfelt connection they have made to our community!
Health, Hope & Answers.
Changing Lives Every Day.

Behavioral Health Services include:
Children and Family Services Early Childhood Behavioral Health:
Easter Seals Blake Foundation Children and Family Services provides a continuum of early childhood behavioral health services for children birth to age eight and their families. This service is available in all 15 Arizona counties. Children and families are provided with an array of intake, assessment, parent-child therapeutic intervention, care coordination, advocacy, parenting education, and children’s groups. ESBF is the only Arizona provider outside of Maricopa County whose staff are trained to utilize the evidence-based Child-Parent Psychotherapy model. We also offer evidence-based Incredible Years children’s and parenting groups. Easter Seals Blake Foundation’s trauma-focused early childhood behavioral health work resulted in the agency earning the Child Abuse Prevention award, at the 2013 March for Children, recognizing our ongoing work supporting abused and neglected children in Arizona. We are considered by many to be the premier early childhood behavioral health agency in our community.
SAGE Behavioral Health Services
SAGE’s behavioral health programs build social and emotional skills, develop positive character traits, and foster collaborative teamwork. These lessons are adapted to suit the needs of any age group and built on as youth age through the program. We believe that through the development of respectful relationships, youth will find balance and place within their community. We aim to transform ‘youth at-risk’ into ‘youth of potential’ by helping them recognize their own strengths as assets on the path to healthy development.
SAGE offers in-home and community-based supports including individual, group, and family therapy in a variety of modalities to meet the therapeutic and developmental needs of participants.
Behavioral Health program funding is provided by Cenpatico Integrated Care and other State of Arizona insurance carriers
