Happy Summer, Teachers! Whether you are working, traveling, reflecting, learning, or doing something else entirely, we hope you find some time to relax, recharge, and drink lots of water!

Children’s Advocacy Center of Southern Arizona

When abuse ends, and healing begins.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Southern Arizona and our partners are the front-line responders in Southern Arizona to reports of child abuse, serious maltreatment, and when children have witnessed violence or other crimes. We work closely with local law enforcement and DCS to provide forensic interviews, medical exams, and advocacy services to children and their non-offending parent/caregiver. We also have a large prevention and education program, providing community outreach events, child abuse prevention and advocacy, parenting workshops, and professional development opportunities. If interested in learning more about our programs for parents and caregivers, please visit our website or contact Jackie Ballesteros at If you would like to arrange a professional development training for your team, staff, or group, please contact Sarah Reed at All of our services are free to the community.
