SHE Counts: Safety
In the United States, more than 3 women are murdered by their intimate partners every day. Arizona Foundation for Women actively partners with organizations like the Diane Halle Center for Family Justice to protect women and children from violence.
SHE Counts: Health
Arizona Foundation for Women focuses on health matters as they apply to Arizona women and children. We have funded programs providing dental care to homeless children as well as prevention programs.
SHE Counts: Economic
Arizona Foundation recognizes that homelessness and "working poor" are a real problem here in Arizona, which is why we fund emergency financial programs for women and children. Plus, our Live and Learn program offers career tract placement to help women get their lives back on track.
