Parents, children reconnect on Family Reunification Day in Mesa | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

After a three-year hiatus due to COVID-19, reunited families were able to celebrate the annual Family Reunification Day in person on Saturday. Hugs, laughs and smiles filled up the room at the City of Grace Church in Mesa.

The event aims to highlight the thousands of Arizona families who have achieved permanency after overcoming the challenges that caused their families to be separated. Permanency is the outcome of a dependency case where a parent is able to gain a family relationship that is legally recognized, according to the Juvenile Law Center.

As part of the process to gain back permanency, parents have taken classes, underwent testing for substance abuse when applicable and worked with caseworkers and parent allies.
