The Children’s Advocacy Center of Southern Arizona and our partners are the front-line responders in southern Arizona to reports of child abuse, serious maltreatment, and when children have witnessed violence or other crimes.

Since opening our doors in 1996, we have served more than 25,000 children.

Our Mission

The mission of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Southern Arizona is to provide a safe, compassionate, healing environment for children who have been a victim or witness to a crime.

Our Shared Vision

  • Provide each child with the safety they need to tell their story.
  • Provide each child with healing services.
  • Hold abusers accountable.

Our Core Values


We work with public and private partners to prevent and address abuse. 


We strive for excellence in all we do, for the sake of the children and families we serve. 


We work to change the lives we touch for the community we call home.

“History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children.”
