All children have access to a living environment that is safe,
healthy, loving and nurturing.
The Mission of the Children's Village of Arizona is: To provide opportunities for children
to live in stable, healthy family environments where siblings can remain together and the
healthy growth and development of children is supported and nurtured.
Children's Village of Arizona is being developed with a foundation of strong values.
Inherent in the values is the belief that all children benefit from a family environment that
resembles as closely as possible the natural home environment with siblings, parents,
and the intra-family rules and boundaries common to families everywhere. The
Children's Village of Arizona operates with the following values that guide the day-to-
day-operations as well as the overall management of the Village.
Safe, Healthy and Nurturing Environment
Children's Village of Arizona provides an
environment that children and youth can depend upon to be safe, healthy and nurturing.
Every Children's Village home looks and operates as the
child's permanent home for as long as they are in foster care, not as a temporary
Children's Village provides children and youth with a sense of permanency and
belonging to the family group and to the community.
Children's Village believes that siblings of all ages and needs belong together
and benefit most when living in a family setting.
Integration with Community
Children's Village believes that children and youth thrive
and develop into adults who can reach their optimum potential when services are
provided through and connections are made with natural community support settings
such as schools, recreation areas, churches and civic organizations.
