Arizona’s Children Association has been proud to be a premier provider of behavioral health services for children and families going back to 1960. Our highly qualified staff have helped vulnerable children and families through some of the most difficult challenges they have faced. Through all of this, AzCA has drawn upon its own limited resources to cover many of the costs not covered by our contracts. Since 2016, AzCA has faced significant financial losses in its behavioral health programming. AzCA has taken major, impactful steps in the past 2 years to try to address the losses we’ve encountered. Because of the significant losses we continue to experience – we have had to take further drastic steps.

For me, the idea of becoming a mother through adoption started when I was in high school. I took a class on early childhood development where I learned about the impact on a child’s brain when deprived of loving touch. That’s when I read David Pelzer’s book, A Child Called It. I read all of his books and recall being horrified by what he endured at the hands of foster parents. I remember thinking, “I can do better.”

In the wake of yet another mass shooting that took place yesterday in Nashville, the AzCA family is pained by the loss of lives and the impact on the victims’ families, survivors, local community, and nation as a whole. We want to take a moment to let you know that we are here to support you, especially when tragedy strikes. Sometimes it is difficult to speak to children about community violence, while also keeping ourselves regulated. We want to provide you some resources for speaking with your families about this tragic event, and provide information on ways to help them feel safer and more secure… and build hope for a more peaceful, kinder future.
