Kindness Rocks at Arizonans for Children!
A Volunteer dropped off a fantastic bag of Kindness Rocks at the Arizonans for Children Phoenix Visitation Center.
Arizonans for Children gets Kindness Rocks decorated and donated by our community to have at both of our Visitation Centers. The centers are for families to have visits while the children are in foster care. These types of rocks are a wonderful way to give the families something tangible to hold and keep while working through the reunification process.
The rocks we hide, the kids love to try to find them with their parents and siblings. A perfect way to bond and engage.
We have been collecting a great amount of Kindness Rocks for the Mesa Visitation Center so it was absolutely wonderful to get some for the Phoenix Visitation Center!
Thanks to our community for adding kindness to our Visitation Centers!
Would like to make some kindness rocks and bring them to the Arizonans for Children Visitation Centers for the families to discover? Or do you have some rocks and paint? Pick a day and time to come to one of the centers and decorate kindness rocks with the families!
What do you get when you combine kids in foster care, goats and yoga? A wonderfully good time! Super BIG Thanks to Lil Goat Town for introducing the children we serve to your goats and yoga. The sunset was stunning, the goats hilarious and the laughter heart warming. This has to have been one of my very favorite events EVER! 🐏🐐🌵💓🧘♀️🧘♂️
The calming serenity of yoga coupled with the hilarity of the goats and the sunset on the beach sand, tiki torches surrounding the area - this was an evening the kids (and a staff, a board member and all the mentors) will never forget. There are times when I've talked to the kids in foster care as we interview them to match them with a volunteer Mentor when the kids cannot remember the last time they laughed. Thanks to Lil Goat Tow
What a weekend at Arizonans for Children! Technology, technology and more technology!
We were very fortunate to be part of AZ Give Camp's Hack-a-Thon where teams of developers volunteer their time and expertise to engineer solutions for non-profits. The hack-a-thon started Friday afternoon at 3:00pm and went all the way until Sunday at 4:00pm!
Thanks to my new best friend Chris Huie, Arizonans for Children participated in this fantastic opportunity. Our team Tomas, Mandy and Cindy listened to our agency needs, tossed ideas around and came up with the perfect solution. This team developed an electronic check-in system that will offer faster check in and out times that will translate into more quality time spent on a visit for the families using the centers. This new system also tracks the data creating seamless reports while respecting and protecting the confidentiality of our clients. All of this was done with the knowledge that cost is always a factor in non-profits and th…
