FANS Across America® 

Child Crisis Arizona is proud to announce a new partnership with Chandler non-profit FANS.

All Students and Families assisted at the FANS Locker Room are by referral and appointment through school districts or partner social services agencies.

The FANS Locker Room 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.

Diaper Bank

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 a 5-day emergency supply of diapers and supplies (baby wipes and cream) for referred families. Families may return to FANS, by appointment, three additional times without needing a new referral.

FANS relies on the Central Arizona Diaper Bank, 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.
