Arizona Child and Adolescent Survivor Initiative


Nearly 3,000 children per year in the United States lose a parent to intimate partner homicide (IPH). These child survivors often need mentorship from adults who can be there for them.

Research finds that children who have a stable and consistent relationship with a caring adult:

· Benefit from the protective factor it provides.

· Are assisted with building resiliency.

· Experience better outcomes in the healing process.

The Arizona Child and Adolescent Survivor Initiative's (ACASI) mission is to develop a multi-county trauma-informed care system to provide wraparound services to children who have lost a parent to intimate partner homicide.

What makes a good mentor?

· A sincere desire to be involved with a child/young person

· Active listening skills

· Empathy

· Ability to see solutions and opportunities

· Flexibility

ACASI provides free, specialized training to identified stakeholders, community partners, providers, and volunteers to address the needs of this vulnerable group of children.
