WHO WE ARE
Kaity’s Way is the first organization in Arizona to focus on bringing awareness to teen dating violence and providing education on healthy relationships.
Kaitlyn (Kaity) Marie Sudberry, was 17-years old when she was murdered by an ex-boyfriend as she walked home from school. To honor Kaity and to work to create a world where other families wouldn’t suffer the same loss, her family formed Kaity’s Way.
Kaity came from a blended family. She was one of five children for Ric and Bobbi Sudberry. A close-knit bunch that had their lives turned upside down on January 28, 2008.
Ric and Bobbi found themselves on a journey they didn’t ask for, but knew they had to help other young people and the adults in their lives learn about the importance of healthy relationships.
Since being founded in 2008, Kaity’s Way has reached more than 91,000 people and continues to grow.
Our inclusive method addresses unhealthy relationships vs. healthy relationships and empowers everyone to be a solution to the problem. The goal is to provide the social, emotional support needed to break the cycle of violence using the elements of a healthy relationship based on the nonprofit’s P.E.A.C.E.
We are currently taking requests for in person or virtual presentations. You can RSVP for our monthly virtual workshop.
FROM THE COMMUNITY
My daughter was a victim of teen dating violence. We heard about Kaity’s Way and their purpose and decided to volunteer because of my daughter’s situation. Through our volunteerism, we have learned a lot about relationships and that we are not alone. We have enjoyed our time with Kaity’s Way and hope to do more in the future. Bobbi truly has a heart of gold!
My daughter is a victim of teen dating violence. We met Bobbi a few years ago after we attended one of her seminars to try and help my daughter learn how to cope with all of this. Bobbi has been a huge advocate and has dedicated her time in helping us deal with this nightmare. She has even attended court to support us and we so greatly appreciate her! We wanted to pay it back to Kaity’s Way and volunteer as much as possible. It not only makes us more aware, it also helps my daughter heal. We are so grateful to have met Bobbi and be a part of Kaity’s Way!
