Mission Statement

The Family Violence Institute (FVI) at Northern Arizona University has implemented a new victim services project called The Arizona Child and Adolescent Survivor Initiative (ACASI). ACASI's mission is to deliver a multi-county, trauma-informed system of care to provide specialized victim services and support to children who have lost a parent to intimate partner homicide (IPH).*

Description

Volunteer with the Arizona Child and Adolescent Survivor Initiative (ACASI)

Nearly 3,000 children per year in the United States lose a parent to intimate partner homicide. 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
