There are over 17,000 children in out of home care in Arizona.

RISE is seeking highly committed and loving people to work with children, ages 0-18 years old and of all ethnicities. The children coming into care are those who have had a rough beginning through abuse, neglect, sexual abuse, drug exposure or violence. We are looking for people who are patient, caring, a good role model and most of all understanding.
