Wellness & Recovery

The Prevention Subcommittee of the Council on Child Safety and Family Empowerment works to address the underlying issues that contribute to a child being removed from a home and placed in foster care.

  • Facilitate and provide support for the Council Initiatives to help Arizona's most vulnerable
  • Prepare annual progress report
