All children are entitled to be safe, healthy, nurtured and valued. Foothills Child Advocacy Center envisions a unified and just community whose members are knowledgeable about and invested in assuring that all child victims receive the benefit of a range of services available in the community.
Foothills Child Advocacy Center provides a coordinated system of effective response and intervention to children who have been victimized. Our goals are to minimize trauma, promote healing, and ensure child safety.
Foothills Child Advocacy Center recognizes, honors, and promotes diversity in race, color, ethnicity, national origin, language, cultural background, religion, creed, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, cognitive ability, educational level, disability, military service, socioeconomic status, neighborhood (including proximity to and awareness of services), and history of abuse. We seek to reflect this diversity and ensure equal opportunity and inclusion in all aspects of our work, including the composition of our board, committees, staff, and volunteers. Further, we seek to be a culturally competent organization, governed by an attitude of cultural humility, so that the children and families we serve do not have to struggle through barriers such as language and culturally biased values or expectations to get the services and support they need.
