We need volunteers to support families at our visitation centers, located in Phoenix and  Mesa. Our centers offer safe and inviting rooms for supervised visitations to take place. Children that are in the foster care system in Maricopa County meet with their biological siblings, relatives and parents. The comfortable and neutral environment AFC provides is the catalyst for the reunification of these families.

These visits may be the last memories the children have with their families and we strive to ensure they are fond ones!
