Arizona’s Children Association Shifts Services in Southern Arizona

Intermountain Centers Merges with AzCA’s Behavioral Health Services in Several Counties

PHOENIX –Arizona’s Children Association (AzCA) has merged its Arizona behavioral health programs in Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz and Yuma Counties into Intermountain Centers for Human Development. Intermountain is an integrated, non-profit health system with numerous locations across Arizona.
AzCA will continue to provide child welfare and prevention services statewide, including Foster Care & Adoption Services, Home Assessment & Courtesy Supervision services, Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children, Kinship Services and Parents as Teachers, Family, Friends and Neighbors programming. AzCA will also continue behavioral health services in Maricopa and Mohave counties and our Neurosequential Model services statewide.

“AzCA and Intermountain have a relationship that extends over 20 years,” said AzCA’s President and CEO Jacob Schmitt. “Ensuring children and families get the care and treatment they need is vital for the communities we serve. Our relationship with Intermountain helps us all meet this commitment and is the best way of preserving AzCA’s legacy.”

Intermountain Centers is a non-profit organization with more than 50 years of experience providing the highest quality, evidence-based, health and human services to improve the overall well-being and welfare of children, families and individuals.

Existing AzCA staff in Southern Arizona have been offered employment through Intermountain. According to Intermountain President and CEO Rose Lopez, “Intermountain is committed to building upon the success of AzCA by embracing staff and improving and enhancing services in each of these communities.”
Intermountain will take ownership of the programs on February 27, 2023.
