Arizona Children’s Association, one of the longest serving statewide child welfare and behavioral health nonprofit agencies in Arizona, is announcing it has been awarded an opportunity grant from Angel Charity for Children.

For over 41 years, Angel Charity for Children has provided over $31 million to organizations and programs that have supported children in Pima County.

Among the seven grants awarded, AzCA has been honored with the second highest amount. This generous support will help Arizona’s Children Association restore the crisis clinician position at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Southern Arizona.

The crisis clinician is a licensed mental health professional specifically trained to support children who are victims of sexual abuse and trauma. The crisis clinician utilizes trauma-informed and evidence-based best practices to ensure children undergoing the investigative process for reported abuse are supported by compassionate and specially trained professionals.

“We are extraordinarily grateful for the unwavering support from Angel Charity for Children. Their belief in our mission has played a crucial role in advancing our ability to support the children, youth, and families of Pima County,” says AzCA President and CEO Jacob Schmitt. “Their generous support allows us to help aid those individuals who have experienced sexual abuse and trauma by reassigning a clinician to deliver the Las Familias program services within the Children’s Advocacy Center of Southern Arizona.”
