Childhelp Receives 2013 Arizona Excellence Award

PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Childhelp®, the nation's oldest and largest non-governmental nonprofit advocating for abused and neglected children, has been selected for the 2013 Arizona Excellence Award amongst all its peers and competitors by the US Trade & Commerce Institute (USTCI).

Each year the USTCI conducts business surveys and industry research to identify companies that have achieved demonstrable success in their local business environment and industry category. They are recognized as having enhanced the commitment and contribution of small businesses through service to their customers and community. Small businesses of this caliber enhance the consumer driven stature that Arizona is renowned for across the country.

Childhelp has consistently demonstrated a high regard for upholding business ethics and company values. This recognition by USTCI marks a significant achievement as an emerging leader within various competitors and is setting benchmarks that the industry should follow.

"We are honored to receive this award in recognition of Childhelp's business ethics," stated Sara O'Meara, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Childhelp. "We strive to always be honest in our dealings and transparent about our finances. Maintaining the trust of our partners, the public, and the children in our care is the only way that we stop the epidemic of abuse in our country. Today, five children die every day from abuse and neglect and we believe that five is Five Too Many™."

As part of the industry research and business surveys, various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the selected companies in each category. This research is part of an exhaustive process that encapsulates a yearlong immersion in the business climate of Arizona.
