Family, Children and Parents

Childcare for COVID-19 Essential Workers
Arizona is committed to making sure parents have access to the resources they need as we work to get our state through the COVID-19 outbreak. Following the announcement by Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman, Arizona Enrichment Centers were established to offer child care for the children of first responders, critical healthcare workers, and essential public sector workers, including child safety workers. It is essential that child care is available so that first responders and emergency teams can continue to go to work and serve the community during the state of emergency. Learn more by visiting Arizona Enrichment Centers.

Our Destination Medicine team at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is providing Childcare referral service, submit your request for assistance here.

Boys & Girls Club of Arizona
Remote learning options are not always viable for elementary, middle or high school children (5-17) who do not have a supportive adult, technology equipment/Wi-Fi or adequate nutrition at home.  As a youth development organization, we are also concerned with impact distance learning will have increasing the equity gap in all areas, including academic, social emotional, economic, and nutrition for vulnerable community members. Starting in August, BGCAZ will be offering 18 distance learning sites throughout the Valley. Additional details can be found at https://www.bgcaz.org. You may also download our flyer.
