Back-to-School Drive

Please help us for our back-to-school event by collecting school supplies for foster children throughout Maricopa County. We help hundreds of children in foster care with school supplies and would like to commit to this again for the upcoming school season in July. We serve youth in group homes, foster homes, and kinship. These at-risk youth are already at a disadvantage being in care and we want them to succeed. They stress about getting along with roommates and survival already. Let’s give them one less thing to worry about and make sure that they are ready for school! 

You can hold a school supply drive with your families and friends or shop our Amazon Wishlist ( to have the items sent directly to us.

Pick up and drop off options are available.
