The Issue: Youth's Transition to Foster Care

As of September 2011, there were more than 11,000 children in Arizona removed from their homes and placed in out-of-home care due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment, according to Arizona Department of Economic Security statistics. Entering foster care can be a difficult and scary transition for children, as they often must leave behind all of their possessions and move into an unfamiliar environment with unfamiliar people.

The Campaign: Providing Care Packages to Foster-Care Kids

If this Grassroots campaign raises $350, then Arizona’s Children Association can provide Just for Me care packages to 23 youth entering foster care. The care packages are intended to comfort children as they transition into a new environment. The package contents depend on the child's age but can include items such as diapers, bottles, blankets, teddy bears, coloring books, journals, and disposable cameras. Each additional $15 raised will provide a care package to another youth entering foster care.

Arizona’s Children Association

Founded in 1912 by a group of women, Arizona’s Children Association has spent the last century providing housing and care for children who have been orphaned or neglected. The organization now runs more than 40 programs that span every county in the state, serving more than 45,000 children and their families. The organization's foster-care program searches for loving families for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Families who are going through the adoption-certification process can find support through its adoption services. Arizona’s Children Association also recruits, trains, and supervises adoptive families and offers postadoption support services. In addition, a slew of prevention programs—including crisis nursery care, a financial-literacy program, and parent resource centers—work in unison to help communities stop neglect and abuse.
