About Children’s Action Alliance
Children’s Action Alliance is an independent voice for Arizona children at the state capitol and in the community. CAA works to improve children’s health, education, and security through information and action.
Through research, publications, media campaigns, and advocacy, CAA seeks to influence policies and decisions affecting the lives of Arizona children and their families on issues related to health,child abuse and neglect, early care and education, budget and taxes, juvenile justice, children and immigration, and working families. CAA works toward a future in which all children have health insurance, no child is raised in poverty and hunger, every child enters school ready to learn and succeed, no child endures the ravages of abuse and neglect, every child has a place to call home, and struggling teens have the support they need to become responsible adults.

WE COMMUNICATE the needs of children. Through research, publications, media campaigns and advocacy, Children’s Action Alliance ensures that children’s needs are known and acted upon.
WE INFLUENCE policies and decisions, making our children’s best interests our state’s priority.
WE DEMAND progress from our leaders and elected officials. There is no excuse for Arizona to be ranked among the lowest in the nation in child well-being.
WE INFORM the public about the voting records of Arizona politicians, holding them accountable for their campaign promises to our kids.
WE IMPROVE children’s lives, by combining policy expertise with the power of strategic communications and advocacy to achieve real results.
WE SHARE common goals:
- That all children have health insurance
- That no child is raised in poverty and hunger
- That every child enters school ready to learn and succeed
- That no child endures the ravages of abuse and neglect
- That every child has a place to call home
- That struggling teens have the support they need to become responsible adults
Because of CAA’s work, Arizona’s children are safer and healthier. Children being raised by their grandparents have more financial help to pay for housing, clothes and school supplies. Thousands of parents and children are getting enrolled in health coverage. More children in working families benefit from safe, affordable child care. And youth in foster care have greater access to health care, college, and much needed support services to help them transition successfully into adulthood.
