The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
T o facilitate opportunities that provide effective solutions to alleviate hardships and improve the fragile lives of the abused, abandoned, neglected children in foster care.
Arizonans for Children has three visitation centers, located in Phoenix, Mesa and Peoria. The centers offer safe and inviting rooms for supervised visitations to take place. Children that are in the foster care system in Maricopa County meet with their biological siblings, relatives and parents. The comfortable and neutral environment AFC provides is the catalyst for the reunification of these families. Volunteers will facilitate the orchestration of visits at one of the three visitation centers. These visits may be the last memories the children have with their families and we strive to ensure they are fond ones!
Additionally, Arizonans for Children offers education programs to support foster children. The education programs offered include Tutor/Menor, Justice League, Financial Literacy/Aging Out, Dance, Cooking, Sewing, Craft and Lifebook.
