We Love Serving our Community!

Volunteers are needed to assist with our Foster, Kinship & Adoptive Families Christmas with Santa event on Saturday, December 4th. To volunteer at this event, please see the available volunteer sign-up slots.

 

For many foster children, Christmas is a reminder that they are separated from their parents, siblings and family. It is a time of high anxiety, triggers and trauma as they face the realization that they will not be "home for the holidays." ASA Now recognizes and understands the financial hardship and the added strain that foster and kinship families face during the holidays.

For foster families facing financial difficulties, ASA Now provides gifts for the entire family. We provide families with the opportunity and time to focus on the children in their care by hosting and Enchanted Christmas Holiday Celebration. This event gives foster and adoptive children the chance to meet Santa, enjoy refreshments, games, crafts and holiday-themed activities. Families also have the opportunity to receive a professional family photo as well as a photo with Santa.

Our event lifts children's spirits during a difficult time of the year when they miss their families most. It helps lessen feeling of isolation and loneliness in foster children by giving them an opportunity to spend time with other children in foster care and most importantly, it allows children in foster care who are living in separate homes the chance to reunite with their sibling for a fun-filled holiday celebration. 

Our last semi-annual report showed that there were 14,929 children in the foster care system and only 5,213 licensed foster homes. More than 40 percent of these children are under the age of five and unfortunately, 1,598 of them remain in group homes and shelters waiting to be placed in a home and over 3,255 of these children are legally free for adoption. We would like to show our appreciation to those families who have opened up their homes and hearts to some of Arizona’s most vulnerable children.

On behalf of our parents, thank you so much for your support!

Please consider inviting your co-workers, friends, and loved ones and don't forget to share the link on your social media.

Cash or in-kind donations can be claimed by the donor as deduction on their individual tax returns. We are happy to provide you with a receipt. Simply email us a copy of your receipt to asanow.org@gmail.com Subject: In-Kind Donation Receipt Needed.

ASA Now is a volunteer led organization that helps children and families impacted by foster care reach their full potential by focusing on prevention. We provide after school events such as: tutoring, dance, guitar, piano, art, yoga, karate, life-skills, trainings, support group, clothing, food, a lending library, parents night out, and much more.

All services provided by ASA Now are made possible by the support of caring volunteers and donors within our community.
