Holiday Toy & Clothing Drive to benefit Aviva Children’s Servicesby Carolyn Classen on Dec. 02, 2012, under Health, Life

Website for Aviva Children’s Services, http://www.avivatucson.org/.
Since its inception, Aviva Children’s Services has existed to improve the lives of children who have experienced abuse, neglect, and poverty and are in the care of Child Protective Services (CPS). Aviva began in 1978 after the local Tucson newspaper ran a series of articles revealing serious inadequacies in Arizona’s foster care system. In the next few years, Aviva grew from a loosely organized group of volunteers to one of the largest providers of service to children in the care of Child Protective Services. In 1999 Aviva was incorporated as a nonprofit in the State of Arizona.
