Mission Statement


Arizonans for Children, incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, exists to facilitate opportunities and provide effective solutions to alleviate hardships and improve the fragile lives of the abused, neglected and abandoned children in foster care. Sensitive to the day to day needs of children in protective custody, AFC has developed programs and trained volunteers to help stabilize and bring comfort to their complicated lives. Arizonans for Children operates three visitation centers in Peoria, Phoenix and Mesa. The centers are staffed by volunteers and they are designed for the purpose of family reunification.
