Outdoor Visit Center Completed

Aviva Children’s Services Outdoor Visit Center is now completed and will be officially opened in April 2015. The first of its kind in southern Arizona, this outdoor playing space is dedicated exclusively to help DCS families in the process leading to reunification.

Both our indoor and outdoor centers reflect our deep commitment to provide a safe, secure, happy and non-judgmental place for families to heal and learn. This project is made possible in part by a $250,000 grant from Angel Charity for Children.

Take Credit For Helping Children In Foster Care
