Thriving children and families in a safe and healthy community.
Hope Community Services’ (formerly West Valley Child Crisis Center) mission is to create lasting solutions for children and families by providing innovative programs to foster safe and healthy communities within Arizona.
Every child in Arizona deserves a safe and healthy environment where they can thrive. That is why Hope Community Services (HCS) provides safe placement services, parent education & training and behavioral health services for children who have experienced trauma such as abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
Hope Community Services (HCS) began in 1986 as West Valley Child Crisis Center (WVCCC). The Soroptimist International of the Kachinas saw a critical need for emergency shelter for children. Soroptimist combined their efforts with the assistance of the John F. Long Foundation to renovate and establish the first two shelter residences in 1986 and 1988. For over sixteen years WVCCC operated out of two residential homes helping children who were victims of abuse, abandonment, domestic violence or neglect.
Today West Valley Child Crisis Center is known as Hope Community Services (HCS), and our vision remains the same: to ensure Arizona’s children have a safe, stable, healthy place to call home and thrive. We continue to serve the same needs through our Child Welfare Programs: Foster Care, Kinship, Adoption, Family Visitation Programs, and our Behavioral Health Programs.
Hope Community Services cannot achieve our mission alone. We are thankful to our volunteers, board members, foster families, adoptive families, as well as community, corporate, foundation and government partners that support the children who need it most – Thank You!
