AAI Programs

Shelter service opened in 1986.  The facility is the only domestic violence shelter of its kind in Western Pinal County.  The goals of La Casa de Paz are to provide safety, stabilization, basic needs, guidance and counseling to families in need.  Women are assisted with exploring choices and alternatives to domestic violence.  Through advocacy and case management, staff assist members with locating appropriate providers of legal, medical, vocational, educational and/or other human services.


Individual and group counseling sessions are available to shelter residents and community members that are victims of abuse. 


Since 1989 this facility has been licensed by the Department of Economic Security, and has provided safety and shelter for children from birth to eighteen (18) years of age who are battered, neglected, abused or in crisis.  This home-like environment offers 24-hour care and supervision.  Children placed in this facility receive unconditional emotional support, counseling, case management and individualized educational and recreational programs.


Children who reside in AAI shelters are introduced to the concept of financial literacy.  Stipends are earned by the children who perform chores:  $1 per day for the younger children and $2 per day for the older children.  The children hand-paint their own "piggy banks" which are kept secure by staff.  Children are encouraged to save their money for large purchases or for future needs, but they are allowed to purchase anything as long as they record their expenses in a check register.  This encourages the children to pay attention to where they are spending their money.
