17,000 Children Sleep Safely, Thanks to Az Helping Hands
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.
Our Community Shows Its Heart!
Many are looking forward to turning the calendar to 2021. This year has brought us challenges and issues we could never have imagined, and there are many reasons to want to put 2020 in the rearview mirror.
Safety First, a Crucial Matter for Foster Parents
In 2016, Arizona Helping Hands expanded our services to foster families to include the safety items needed to pass Arizona’s home inspection standards to become a licensed foster home.
You Can Never Know When You Might Need A Helping Hand!
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.
Putting Our Helping Hands Together for the Dads!
Foster Dads don’t have nine months to wrap their heads around the responsibilities of parenting. They are called on often at a moment’s notice because children desperately need that one caring adult who will be present in their lives.
Tragedy Befalls an Amazing Foster Family
I met Curtis four years ago. He came to Arizona Helping Hands to receive beds, cribs, clothing, diapers, sports equipment and more to help his family. His daughter’s life had been tragically stolen in a moment, and his FIVE grandchildren needed grandpa’s love and safety. Curtis took in his grandchildren despite the fact that as a schoolteacher he had limited resources.
May is Foster Care Awareness Month
Governor Doug Ducey has again issued a proclamation declaring the month of May to be Foster Care Awareness Month. The Governor urges “all citizens to do something positive to improve the lives of children in foster care.”
Innovating To Serve The Needs Of Children In Foster Care
The coronavirus pandemic has challenged businesses to take a hard look at how they operate and utilize their team to continue to be viable in this environment. For nonprofits like Arizona Helping Hands whose services have been deemed essential, the question is how to make our services available to families in need while keeping our staff and an army of volunteers safe.
We’re in This Together!
