We need your support! Today, there are more than 14,000 children living in out-of-home care in Arizona. We must give these kids the care they need by providing safe home environments, but we also have to address the family issues that create these situations of abuse and neglect. Our evidence-based parenting and support programs help ensure that families receive the comprehensive services that will help them avoid the circumstances that could lead to a child’s removal from the home. It’s time to keep ALL Arizona children in safe and stable households, fill the needs not covered by state funding, and educate our community about the real issues facing Arizona children in need – and we need your support.
We are proud to announce the 5th Annual “Dancing for Arizona’s Children” Dance Challenge & Brunch! Community leaders from all over the Valley will perform with a professional dancer at a brunch event to raise funds for this important cause. This year, we’re welcoming back dancers from the previous years in a showstopper event of all-stars and novices.
All funds raised will go directly to Arizona’s Children Association’s “Strengthening Families” Fund, which goes directly to support our Foster Care, Adoption, Kinship, and Family Education and Support Services.
