Donor Highlight
Julie Rother
Meet Julie, a donor and supporter of Prevent Child Abuse Arizona for over four years. Throughout her professional career as a realtor in Yavapai County, Julie has incorporated local charities into all that she does, which is how she first became involved with PCA Arizona. Upon learning about PCA Arizona's mission, Julie immediately sought to engage us as a beneficiary for a local event. Julie stays engaged with PCA Arizona in a variety of ways: as a volunteer, donor, and peer fundraiser (she raised $250 during her birthday with a Facebook fundraiser!).

Julie's devotion to children began way back in her days as a freshman at the University of Arizona. While studying in Tucson, she volunteered at a children's crisis center where she witnessed first-hand the heartbreaking effects of child abuse and neglect. Today, Julie strives to get in front of the problem by supporting programs that educate parents before child abuse and neglect even occur.

We are so grateful for Julie and all that she does to keep kids safe and families strong.
Impact Story
Statewide Progress in Prevention
The Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) is the most researched parenting program in the world, boasting more than 980 trials, studies, and published papers examining the program's outcomes in diverse environments.

Over the last ten years, Prevent Child Abuse Arizona has sought funding to implement this evidence-based program statewide. PCA Arizona received strong support to begin Triple P in Maricopa County with funding from the Steele Foundation, and then expanded on implementation in Maricopa through the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.

This year, the Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family has included statewide Triple P trainings as part of the State Opioid Response grant to Prevent Child Abuse Arizona. The picture to the left displays the geographic areas where Triple P training spots have been allocated across Arizona in year one of the State Opioid Response grant.
