Summertime Safety Tips

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

As we are rounding the bend, with back to school in sight let’s not lose focus of staying safe around water and in the sun. Children love the hot summer months, because they provide the perfect opportunity to spend lots of time outside. Whether it’s swimming in the pool, out and about on vacation, or going for a bike ride, we want to remind parents that there are potential dangers during the summer months, and it’s important to be aware of what they are.


Early Head Start Expands to Mesa

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Child Crisis Arizona will expand its Early Head Start program to its Mesa location located at 817 N. Country Club Drive. Thanks to funding from the Office of Head Start, the program will serve more than 100 children and create 30 new jobs, expanding the agency’s workforce to 300.


Sensory Integration Therapy

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Sensory integration therapy plays a significant role in the work we do with children in our emergency shelters. When a child comes to the shelter, either through the Department of Child Safety or a Community Placement, specially trained staff and volunteers assess each child’s situation and develop a plan to address any development deficits.
