Alliance for Children & Youth With Unique Challenges


It is our mission to bridge gaps and support families, children, and youth with unique challenges.


Our vision is that at the end of the day we see the person and not the challenge. 


To support effective inclusion and policy promotion efforts for this diverse population, the Maricopa County Department of Public Health in partnership with the Arizona Department of Health Services formed the Alliance for Children and Youth with Unique Challenges to address health policy promotion activities in Maricopa County.

As an alliance, we strive to:
  • Increase the recognition of families of children with special health care needs as integral partners in the care of their child's health and well-being.
  • Promote the recognition of young adults with special health care needs as integral partners in their own health and well-being.
  • Increase a focus on inclusion and integration of children and young adults with special health care needs and their families in health policy.
