We are a private, community-based, non-profit organization serving children, youth, and families


Our Mission

At Child and Family Resources, we build strong communities where children can reach their full potential

We do this by using effective prevention and education strategies with families, teens, and early educators.

Hacemos esto usando estrategias eficaces de prevención y educación con familias, adolescentes y educadores de temprana edad.

 

Our family programs build resilient children and families. Being a parent presents special challenges and joys. Some parents are faced with even harder challenges such as having a child with developmental disabilities, living in poverty, or not being able to provide basic needs for their children. Our in-home Family Support Specialists teach parents how to be the best parents they can be despite these challenges.

Our youth programs teach teens how to be leaders in their schools and communities. They also teach teens about safe sex and how to make the best choices for themselves and their bodies.

Our services for childcare providers help them provide the highest quality child care possible. Investment in quality early childhood care saves money by increasing the likelihood that children will be literate, employed, enrolled in post secondary education, and less likely to be school dropouts, dependent on welfare or arrested for criminal activity.


Our History

Child & Family Resources has a long history of building community collaborations that address unmet needs and gaps in social services. The agency was originally known as The Tucson Association for Child Care in 1970.

The goal was to mobilize communities to develop quality childcare options for low-income families. As the agency grew and took on new challenges, the name was changed to reflect the wider scope of our programs.

We currently employ over 300 people in offices in Apache Junction, Bullhead City, Casa Grande, Douglas, Kingman, Nogales, Phoenix, Safford, Sierra Vista, Tucson, and Yuma.

Staff members reflect the cultural demographics of the communities they serve and are residents of those same communities. We help build communities that value children and families.
