Our Programs

For foster and kinship families

Basic Needs

Provide children with a safe place to sleep and more, including twin beds, cribs, linens, clothing, diapers, wipes, educational activities, and personal hygiene kits.

Back to School

Prepare children for success in school with backpacks and school supplies.

“The Back to School services saved us so much. I got custody of my brothers six kids and wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to get school supplies for all of them and my own daughter as well.” -Sandra, Kinship Provider

Birthday Dreams

Celebrate children with personalized birthday packages filled with toys, games, books, and puzzles to lift their self-esteem.

“You made our son’s 3rd birthday truly special! He loved the gifts. He plays with them all the time. We really appreciate all you do and have done for all our foster kids. We even adopted our daughter – who you helped a few times. Now our hopes are to adopt this boy AND his brother. Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you do. Thank you!” -The Foster Family

Foster Footlockers

Create peace of mind for children by providing a safe place to store personal keepsakes and belongings.

“Thanks a million for my footlocker. Now the guys in my group home won’t get into my stuff.” -Foster Teen

Licensing Safety Items

Ensure a safe home environment with fire extinguishers, first aid kits and more to meet Arizona’s Life Safety Inspection requirements.

“It can be difficult to unexpectedly need to care for a child of any age but these provisions help extremely to soften the unexpected. Covering the safety concerns allows more time to be devoted to other important needs of the child” – Foster Mom
