Over 40 years of Safe Kids, Strong Families.
Who We Are
Child Crisis Arizona has been helping our community’s most vulnerable children, youth and families for nearly five decades. In times of crisis, we are there to help. When no crisis threatens, we are there to strengthen families, build resiliency and prevent crisis situations.
Child Crisis Arizona’s mission is to provide children and youth in Arizona a safe environment, free from abuse and neglect, by creating strong and successful families.
We do this through prevention, intervention and education programs designed to support the thousands of children and families who may be at risk. All of our work centers on our vision of safe kids…strong families.
You can read about all of these programs and their impact in our 2020 Community Report.
Emergency Children’s Shelter
Child Crisis Arizona operates two Emergency Children’s Shelters for children up to age 10 who have experienced abuse or neglect. Open 24 hours a day each day of the week, we offer a safe haven for children who arrive due to neglect, abandonment, homelessness, abuse or parental incarceration. Our specially trained staff and volunteers provide comfort, care, and support, as well as medical care, counseling, and attention to developmental delays. We also operate a group home for boys ages 10-18 in the foster care system.
