We were saddened to learn that Dr. Frank Scarpati passed away earlier today. Dr. Scarpati was the CEO of Community Bridges, Inc. (CBI) from 1996 until his retirement in June of 2019. As shocked and saddened as we are by the news of his passing, we can rejoice in the fact that CBI is truly an agency that evolved into a product of his vision and is representative of a worldview that he held dear.

During Dr. Scarpati’s tenure as CEO, CBI moved from what he liked to refer to as “one dilapidated building on an acre of mud” to more than 34 programs across Arizona. His vision and passion of service allowed CBI to grow into one of the largest behavioral health providers in Arizona.

Each program we built, and in every community where we built it, his primary focus was always on ensuring that we made a positive impact on the community and that our staff and patients would have an opportunity to change their lives for the better.

His work, dedication and passion reached far beyond CBI and was a key figure in reshaping the way behavioral health services are provided in Arizona. An elder statesman of our field, he witnessed and helped force change that expanded behavioral health services and created opportunities for generations to come. Dr. Scarpati believed wholeheartedly in our mission of “maintaining the dignity of human life” and never shied away from taking actions that would support that mission and to move the agency forward.

When we speak of legacy the best most can hope for is to be remembered fondly. Dr. Scarpati’s legacy however is omnipresent in countless lives that have been forever changed, the work that we continue to do today, and the growing work that CBI will be doing well into the future.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in their time of loss and we will continue to honor his memory by continuing on with the mission of service to others.

The family are yet to make public the funeral arrangements. We are unable to confirm if a GoFundMe was created by the family/friends of the deceased at the time of this publication.

This post will be updated with more information as they are made available and public.
