ASA Now is a non-profit organization created out of the love we hold for foster and adoptive children, their families and our community.
With your help, we were able to pass Jacob's Law. ASA Now would love to continue to Advocate, Support, and Assist children, families, providers, professionals and policy makers by working collaboratively to make Arizona the leading State in child welfare. We are restoring hope and empowering each one we come into contact with to better serve our children in need.
"Thank you for your immense personal investment of time, research, effort, experience and determination to move policies that serve foster/adoptive/kinship children and families into law and then facilitating the process of integrating all those rights and resources into everyday practice. Amazing work you are doing!"
Director/Co-founder of Adoptive Families Coalition
Through our advocacy in passing Jacob's Law we learned of the dire need for additional preventative services in the foster/adoptive community. Our new mission is to open a community center where we can strengthen and support these children and their families by providing much needed respite care, after school activities, training, support groups and much more.
Gilbert Moms Fight for Foster Care
Meet our Founders: Anika Robinson, Susan Woodruff and Angela Teachout (ASA). These 3 seasoned foster & adoptive moms recognized a huge need in our community and decided to meet with Arizona Legislators. Instead of complaining about the issues, they brought real solutions to the table. Their countless hours of dedication lead to the signing of Jacob's Law on March 24, 2016.
