So many questions. At the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth, we have been busy trying to help families, partner organizations and members navigate this new virtual world. …

Now, more than ever, there is so much to do to help families in Coconino County, and with your help as a supporting member, we can continue to help the community and expand our efforts to meet the ever-changing times. Please visit here for membership options.

Thousands of committed foster parents, social workers, advocates, professionals, and volunteers work tirelessly to protect and nurture these vulnerable children and find them a permanent, stable place to call home but there is more the community can do to help.

Northern Arizona Clinical Leaders Coalition reminds communities emergency rooms, other health care services safe for care

During the COVID-19 outbreak in Arizona, some community members may not be receiving important health care – for fear of being exposed to COVID-19. The northern Arizona Clinical Leaders Coalition wants to remind our communities that emergency rooms and other health care services are safe for care.

What is clear to us at Children’s Action Alliance are the critical actions state lawmakers must take to ensure that children and families’ needs are addressed during this crisis.
