Advocates for Arizona’s Children

Child Crisis Arizona serves and protects Arizona’s most vulnerable children from abuse and neglect, and to help build strong families for the future. We work tirelessly to provide opportunities for these children so they can experience safe, stable childhoods and receive emergency care when needed.
Child Crisis Arizona has decades of experience preventing child abuse and strengthening families in Maricopa County. We are known throughout Arizona as child and family advocates.

The Situation in Arizona

Arizona ranks among the worst states in the U.S. for child welfare and education. With over 17,000 children in out-of-home care, Arizona is also in a foster care crisis. We are working closely with other organizations and agencies, foster parents, elected officials, and volunteers to bring this crisis to an end, raise Arizona’s rankings and protect children.
The current crisis in Arizona child welfare is vast and complex. We need your help!

How You Can Join Us to Advocate for Children

There are many different ways to advocate for Arizona children that, no matter your background, education or availability, there is an option for you.

Vote to Protect Children

The most important and easiest thing to do is register to vote, then vote for those who support education and programs that protect children. To register to vote, visit the County Recorder website, visit for all voting information.

Make sure you vote in all primary and general elections. Individuals registered as an Independent are able to vote in primary elections by requesting a primary ballot for one of the parties. Be sure to educate yourself about the candidates and issues to make informed decisions about the important issues facing Arizona.

Be Informed
