Going back to school is a difficult time for any child, especially for kids that have been removed from their parents due to abuse or neglect and may be starting in a new school. There is so much stress these kids are dealing with that having the proper supplies should be the last thing on their mind.
Every year, thousands of Arizona's children go back to school without the necessary materials they need to succeed in the classroom. We are hoping to change that for many low-income families each year! With your support, we can ensure Arizona's young children have what they need for a happy, healthy and productive return to the school year!
Southwest Human Development's Foster Care and Adoption program assists families seeking to provide homes for children who have been removed from their parents due to abuse or neglect. Services include training, kinship home studies, foster care licensing, adoption certification, annual guardianship reports, and placement supervision and support. Our annual Back to School supply drive supports these families.
