ARIZONA BUILDERS ALLIANCE

Phoenix, AZ 85007

The Arizona Builders Alliance has been so gracious to provide Christmas toys for all the Sunshine Kids. Making Christmas special for over 300+ Sunshine Kids can be a monumental task when you think of purchasing toys, wrapping and delivering. So when Arizona Builders Alliance called to say they would play Santa, we couldn’t resist. Thank you.

AFFCF NEW LOGO blue

ARIZONA FRIENDS OF FOSTER CHILDREN FOUNDATION

1645 E. Missouri Ave., Ste 450
Phoenix, AZ 85016

The Sunshine Angels will interface with AFFCF’s Keys to Success program, assisting Sunshine youth as they transition from the group home.

AFFCF has recently embarked on a new program to serve young men and women in foster care ages 15-  21. More than 800 youth will age out of foster care at age 18 in Arizona this year – without family relationships to support them and few financial resources.

Their Keys to Success program includes a four step career exploration process: 

  1. Investigate: Discover the youth’s personality, abilities, skills, interests and priorities. 
  2. Match possible careers to the results of the investigation process. 
  3. Research potential careers to find top three fits. 
  4. Prepare a plan to pursue the top career choice.   

What makes this program unique and meaningful is that their career development specialist works one-on-one with each youth, evaluating their interests and skills, values and personality. Once a youth completes the career exploration process, he/she will work with a volunteer who currently works with one of many companies across the Valley that are committed to hiring youth from foster care. Once a youth secures employment, AFFCF will follow up regularly with the employer and the youth.

ASHLEY HOME FURNITURE HOPE TO DREAM PROGRAM

Sunshine Angels are thrilled to add Ashley Furniture to our list of Angel Partners. Ashley’s Hope to Dream Program is truly a dream come true if you are a foster child aging out of the system.

When youth age out of the foster care system, they are at their most vulnerable. Imagine moving into your own apartment or rented room and you have no bed or other needed furniture. Nor do you have the money to purchase these necessary items.

Ashley Furniture has pledged to supply beds and other furniture to assist foster children when they age out of foster care in Arizona.
