Arizona’s Children Association (AzCA) provides strength-based services to assist individuals and families in heightening social-emotional well-being and guiding those that have been impacted by trauma and abuse through the healing process. Our programs provide support and intervention for children and their families to address current needs and strengthen the family unit.

Does my child need help?

For many reasons, children may become depressed, angry or experience anxiety. If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, Arizona’s Children Association can help!

Behavioral Health & Trauma/Crisis Response

At AzCA, we primarily serve the behavioral health needs of children from birth up to their 22nd birthday. Services for adults are provided as part of some of our specialty programs.

We provide resources and supports that are specific to your child, no matter their age. In particular, we recognize and provide extra support for the needs specific to children who are ages 0-5, and those adolescents and young adults considered Transition Age Youth, ages 16-21.

At Arizona’s Children Association (AzCA), we believe all services and support should be delivered in a trauma-informed, culturally and linguistically responsive manner.

This Trauma Informed Care approach recognizes that we must understand the
whole of the person who is seeking services. All staff are trained in Trauma
Informed Care, and this approach is at the core of our daily practice.

Our services are provided in the environment that you request in order to best meet the needs of your family whether that is in-home, in the community, in school, at one of our local offices, or via telehealth.

AzCA is a provider for all of the health plans associated with AHCCCS insurance for behavioral health needs. In addition, AzCA accepts self-pay for many of our services. We also receive specific funding to offer our specialty programs, regardless of insurance. We encourage you to connect with our intake department to assist you with any questions you may have for this.
