More than 930 volunteers provide 25,551 hours of service at Child Crisis Arizona, equaling the estimated value of $601,981*. Our dedicated volunteers are truly an inspiration, taking on tasks that range from laundry at our Emergency Children’s Shelters, reading to children at our preschool, making decorations for our Foster Care and Adoption Program to bringing a therapy dog to help heal the hearts and minds of children we care for.
There are so many unique needs we face and our volunteers fill those gaps in ways that go above and beyond as individuals as well as groups. What is so evident in each and every person that chooses to volunteer at Child Crisis Arizona is how invested they are in the children we serve.
It is our Volunteer team who works so diligently to foster and grow those relationships with those who feel compelled to help children in our community. “I enjoy talking with volunteers about the incredible staff and the huge difference they make in the lives of the families and children we serve,” says Tasia, our Volunteer Manager.
This season we are so thankful for our community that embraces our vision of Safe Kids, Strong Families. Through volunteering, donations and advocating on our behalf, our community makes it possible to help so many more children and families in our community.
Thanks to Season for Sharing and The Arizona Republic for highlighting one of our longtime volunteers, Kathy Brady. Read her story here:
