One of the first families in the community, Donnie and Amanda Back moved to Rancho Sahuarita in December of 2001. The couple explained that during their search for a home, safety and affordability was crucial; they are pleased with the growth of the Rancho Sahuarita community while maintaining affordability and that it is also known to be one of the safest places to live in the U.S.
Donnie and Amanda have five children: Isaiah, Olivia, Alexandra, Bethany and Serenity. Looking back at the past two-decades, the small hometown feeling of Rancho Sahuarita, the parks and trails, and events have been their greatest love for the community and have allowed them to Create a Better Life for their family. The Back family has attended dozens of events; their two favorites have been the 4th of July Celebration and Rodeo Round-Up over the years.
The couple noted that the outdoor spaces are beautiful and feel that they’ve have helped the family strengthen their relationships. The Back family are easily able to access two private parks to spend family time or hang out with friends.
