Arizonans for Children, Inc. (AFC) exists to facilitate opportunities and provide effective solutions to improve and stabilize the fragile lives of abused, neglected and abandoned children in child protective custody in Arizona.
Arizonans for Children, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to improving the fragile lives of children and youth in foster care in Maricopa County by providing opportunities to help them break out of the cycle of abuse and poverty.
