Happy Family

about us

Our Sister Our Brother is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit organization that was created to assist in the safe reunification of children currently in foster care, and their caregivers who have been separated by traumatic child removals. We also work to keep families together and prevent removals.

Guiding Principles

love

We believe in treating our neighbor with love, especially in times of need

authority

Parents have the primary responsibility to make decisions for their family and keep children safe

justice

Respect, integrity and fairness are essential in doing what is right for families

unity

Working together to support families will benefit our entire community

Heightened focus

Only *5% of Arizona's children are Black, but represent about **17% of the state's foster care population. We have an intentional focus on supporting the Black community in Arizona. On the long journey for change, we are committed to serving the Black community to help them realize Justice now. We are also partnering with other community organizations to help preserve families and avoid unnecessary child removals especially in the overrepresented Black community.
