We provide no-cost daily necessities to children and families in need.
FANS Distribution Center
Child Crisis Arizona operates the FANS Distribution Center that assists homeless students and families, families in transition and victims of domestic violence with their basic daily living necessities such as clothes, shoes, toiletries, personal hygiene items, household cleaning supplies and school supplies.
All Students and Families assisted at the distribution center are by referral and appointment through school districts or partner social services agencies.
The FANS Distribution Center is located at 78 W Ray Road, Suite 3, in Chandler, Arizona (adjacent to San Tan Credit Union) and serves as the acceptance, processing and distribution center.
Learn more about our most needed items by viewing our wish list.

“Not knowing what to expect I was met with such warmth and kindness the moment I walked through the front door. Maria was awesome and she made sure that we had everything that we needed for our new start… I am so grateful. FANS is a true blessing.”

Diapers are one of the only items with no State or Federal subsidy for Families facing economic or personal hardships. The FANS Diaper Bank assures diapering needs are fulfilled for Chandler and East Valley Families referred to FANS. The FANS Diaper Bank provides an emergency supply of diapers and supplies (baby wipes and cream) for referred families. Families may return to FANS, by appointment.
FANS relies on corporate, civic & faith groups and individual donor diaper drives to maintain our supply to meet the increasing needs of referred families. Volunteer to host a diaper drive, donate diapers / supplies, or make a monetary donation to assure that babies of families served by FANS within Chandler and the S.E. Valley don’t go without.
For more information or to schedule a donation drop-off or volunteer contact FANS at 480-821-3013.
