Speak Up for Abused and Neglected Kids…
The surge in children suffering from neglect and the number of children in foster care has created glaring gaps in Arizona’s child safety system. New funding is needed to expand the system’s capacity.

Please send an email today asking your lawmakers to support Governor Brewer’s $77.6 million budget for child safety. This includes both CPS staffing and the tools necessary to respond in the most basic, fundamental way to the growing number of neglected children and children in foster care.
