The need for boys clothing donations, both used and new, remains urgent.
I have met many nonprofit leaders whose organizations provide a few of the services foster families receive from AHH, but have found no organization in the nation that does all that we do for a statewide population of boys and girls.
Giving these kids a safe place to sleep, a personal space to lay down their heads and to dream of their future is the most vital part of our day-to-day services.
In 2013, news stories told of children sleeping in government offices or on the floor at Grandma’s house. These boys and girls who had been victims of abuse and neglect deserved so much better, and we heard a call to action.
Dan Shufelt President & CEO of Arizona Helping Hands speaks with FOX10 about the challenges presented during these times of uncertainty, and the steps Arizona Helping Hands and the community are taking to ensure children in foster care are still receiving essential services.
I thought my friend Dale was coming to say hi and tour the Arizona Helping Hands facility where we provide essential needs to children in Arizona’s foster care system. It turned out that Dale and his wife Pam were not stopping in for a social visit, they were coming to access our assistance.
