Arizona’s Children Association Receives $25K

Mutual of America Foundation honors contributions of nonprofits

In April, Mutual of America Foundation granted $25,000 to Arizona’s Children Association, one of the state’s oldest and largest child welfare and behavioral health nonprofit agencies. The award is a result of the Association’s Tucson Kinship Support Services program being selected as a merit finalist winner of the Foundation’s 2019 Community Partnership Award.

“This gift represents a sign of hope for our future to strengthen and expand our Kinship Support Services,” says Anna Loebe, program director. “This will allow us to begin re-envisioning the goals and tasks of wraparound services for ALL caregivers who raise other people’s children.”

The Mutual of America Community Partnership Award annually honors the outstanding contributions nonprofit organizations, in partnership with public, private and other social sector organizations make to society.

In Arizona, there are more than 160,000 children living in homes headed by grandparents or other relatives. AZCA’s programs help support these special families with services including education, referrals, legal resources, paperwork aid, support groups and more. Research indicates that children in kinship care experience greater stability than those in traditional foster care.
