Mission Statement

AASK's mission is to build and strengthen families for the children in Arizona's foster care system.


Local philanthropist Katherine Herberger founded AASK - Aid to Adoption of Special Kids because she strongly believed in the importance of homes and families for all children, regardless of their unique challenges. AASK, a private, non-profit organization licensed by the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES), is proud to report the facilitation of over 1,200 adoptions since its 1988 inception and provides thousands of families with adoption and foster care services and support annually.

Would you recommend AASK - Aid to Adoption of Special Kids?

Originally, I wasn't sure about volunteering time and the level of dedication that may be needed with the Special Friend mentoring program. However, after getting involved and being matched with my friend, I'm thrilled to have taken the leap. My match couldn't be better, and in addition to feeling good about contributing, I also feel I've personally gained a lot through the experience. AASK is a fantastic organization, and I really can't say enough about the program and the potential to positively impact the lives of children. I only wish I had gotten started sooner, and that more people would make the same leap.

I was very pleased with how informative and thorough training was for the Special Friends program. The creative ideas they gave us in training helped with my first meet with my match. My special friend and I have really enjoyed our time together. I am already looking forward to our next time together. I could not have asked for a better match.
