“I am the mother
of a child that deserves to be seen, deserves to be heard, deserves to be enjoyed, and deserves a full life.”
& Kurt Warner
Treasure House’s accelerated trajectory from dream to reality was the result of the groundwork, passion, and resources of Brenda and Kurt Warner. Brenda, a former nurse and Marine, is a best-selling author, accomplished metal artist, and humanitarian. Kurt is a Hall of Fame, Super Bowl-winning quarterback and current football analyst. Long recognized for their philanthropic and community leadership, the Warners believe that everyone has a calling, and that sometimes, the perfect amount of support and opportunity are required for a purpose to unveil itself.
Brenda and Kurt are parents to seven children, including their eldest son, Zack, who suffered a traumatic brain injury as a child. With inspiration from Zack, they envisioned a community where people with intellectual and developmental disabilities could come together to overcome perceived challenges, develop meaningful relationships and contribute their gifts to society. Recognizing that other families also dreamt of this, the Warners rallied community champions, donors, and volunteers in Arizona and nationally to establish Treasure House Phoenix, which opened its doors in August 2018.
