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

Reduce what you owe in state taxes up to $400 (individuals) or $800 (married couples) when you make a donation to Aviva. This tax credit comes directly off the top of your Arizona tax bill!

The Arizona Foster Care Charitable Tax Credit is easy to claim, repays you for your generosity, and makes a real difference in the life of a child in foster care.

Upcoming and Past Events

Help us meet the increasing need to provide foster children these essential items. During the Spring and Summer, Aviva Children’s Services will be collecting new underwear and socks for children and teens in State care. Last fiscal year we distributed over 6,000 socks and undies. We anticipate we will distribute more than 8,000 units this year. We need all sizes for boys and girls, 2 to XXL.
