Mission Statement:

For more than 100 years, Arizona’s Children Association (AzCA) has stayed true to “Protecting Children, Empowering Youth, Strengthening Families,” serving more than 42,000 children, individuals and families in all 15 counties in the state each year. Arizona’s Children Association provides a myriad of programs, across every county in the state, each tailored to the needs of the particular child, individual or family.

Program History:

In 2012, Arizona's Children Association celebrated our first century of hope. AzCA was originally founded in 1912, as Arizona Children’s Home, to care for homeless, neglected and dependent children. To meet the changing needs of the children, Arizona Children‘s Home developed services that extended beyond the residential program in Tucson, and well beyond Tucson itself.

We began establishing local advisory groups in 1915 with the following cities on record as initial supporters: Globe, Patagonia, Pima City, Safford, Solomon, Thatcher, Prescott, Yuma, and Nogales. By the year 1918, individuals from fifty cities across Arizona made at least one financial contribution to Arizona's Children.

To reflect the changing needs of children served, Arizona Children’s Home changed its name to Arizona's Children Association in 1997. Today, Arizona’s Children Association is one of the largest and oldest child welfare and behavioral health non-profit agencies in Arizona.
