Introducing the Arizona Youth Opportunities Initiative!

Children’s Action Alliance and the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust recently launched a new initiative crafted to help youth who have been living in foster care make successful transitions to adulthood. The Arizona Youth Opportunities Initiative will inventory and evaluate existing services for youth who are leaving the foster care system, recommend services that might be networked together, find gaps in support services, and create new opportunities for foster care “graduates” to move on to higher education and life-long success.

Meghan Arrigo, the newest addition to the CAA team, will head up the initiative. She has already been hard at work the last few weeks laying the groundwork for our successful launch and we are pleased to have her on board.
