Mission Statement

Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona mission is healing abused and homeless children through artistic expression.

Description

Since 1993, volunteers from the community share their creativity in the visual arts, theater, dance, music, creative writing and other art projects with children who live in residential treatment centers, group homes and shelters. Through the creative arts, children build self-esteem and social skills, develop trust with a caring adult and learn to express emotions in a positive way.

Volunteers do not have to be artists! We have many opportunities to share your time with children who need a mentor. We offer a comprehensive onboarding and training process for our volunteers. The first step is to attend a Volunteer Orientation, scheduled throughout the month. Sign up for orientation here.

Please visit our website or call our office at 602-258-8100 for more information. Minimum age: 18 years old.

Would you recommend Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona?

by Cindy C. from alameda, CA (January 5, 2010)
A wonderful program! I mentored three-year olds at a transitional housing facility. I looked forward to going every week. The kids came alive when I showed up, and I really connected with a few of them. It was wonderful to see that my mentoring gave them the opportunity to have positive interactions with an adult. Free Arts provides excellent training and support. Their art supply area is organized and busting with fun supplies, and the staff is helpful and appreciative.

Free Arts really takes care of their volunteer mentors. They have on-going trainings available, and go out of their way to help us. They supply all the materials and supplies, and are always supportive and available for communication. The program managers themselves also work with the children. The organization itself is very stable and organized. I highly recommmend Free Arts of Arizona.
by Cherie S. from Phoenix, AZ (Administrator for this Organization) (June 18, 2008)
I highly recommend volunteering with Free Arts of Arizona as there are many opportunities to be involved, from helping out in the office, to hands-on working with children in group homes and shelters.
