Child Crisis Arizona protects the Valley’s most vulnerable children from abuse and neglect and builds stronger families through educational programming and support services. We also provide emergency shelter for children in need at our campuses in Mesa and Phoenix.
Preventing abuse and neglect is critical to building healthy families. We offer parenting education to support families and provide parents the information they need to provide safe, stable homes for their children.
Arizona is currently in a foster care crisis, with more than 18,000 children seeking homes. We advocate for both children and families to ensure that policy reflects the latest research on how to build stronger families and effectively care for children in crisis.
Child Crisis Arizona educates caregivers through parenting courses and early childhood education programs. We also license, train and support foster and adoptive families. Our Emergency Shelter provides temporary housing for children in crisis. Since 1974, we have housed over 29,000 children in a loving, supportive environment.
