West Valley Child Crisis Center, a recognized leader in providing child welfare services to the most vulnerable in the Valley, announces a new name and fresh look.


Since 1986, West Valley Child Crisis Center (WVCCC) has provided a variety of direct services to children and families in the community through emergency shelter, foster care, adoption, training, and education programs, and recently added behavioral health services throughout Maricopa County.

“For over 32 years, we have helped children who have experienced severe abuse recover from trauma through a variety of evidence-based programs that heal and inspire hope,” said Chief Executive Officer Kary Goitia. “While our original name and logo hold historical significance and a strong legacy, we knew it was time to re-focus to better match our values and our extensive service to the entire region. We wanted our name to reflect what we do, to connect the dots with the life-changing transformations that take place every day through our programs. Our new name and logo communicate a brighter future through community support resulting in a more positive message to those we serve.”

The new name was announced and celebrated at the annual fundraiser luncheon, “RISE ABOVE” on May 2nd to over 250 community supporters and leaders. The new brand includes the name change, updated logo, marketing materials, and an enhanced mission statement. The website, Facebook and other social media accounts are in the process of being updated. The rebranding efforts were successful due to the hard work of OH Strategic Communications along with Southwest Gas, who donated funding.

HOPE COMMUNITY SERVICES looks forward to continuing to serve the children and families most in need in Maricopa County and collaborating with you to strengthen the community!
