Annual Family Photo Contest Awards
 
We received many entries for our  Annual Photo Contest  that left us beaming with pride! Selecting the winner was not an easy task so our staff voted and picked the top four. All photos and quotes from families were remarkable and inspiring, and they are all featured in our This is Our Success video. Take a look and enjoy the moments!
 
We would like to congratulate our winners and thank everyone who participated. For prizes, each winner was awarded a personalized gift based on his or her interests and hobbies.
   
At AZA United, we are honored to have the opportunity to work with so many astounding children and their families. Thank you to all who submitted photos and allowed us to celebrate your children's accomplishments!
Thank You Phoenix Suns
 

We would like to thank the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Suns Charities for selecting us a 2019 grant recipient! The Suns organization has generously been a continuous supporter of  our work with children and families affected by autism throughout Maricopa County. These funds help us expand critical services like ABA, speech therapy, habilitation and respite to more families in need. #RiseTogetherPhoenix
