“The Anasazi Indian Children’s Foundation in Mesa AZ is the home of the Anasazi People, ancient Indian people who lived in the southwest of the United States from about 100 B.C. until roughly 300 years ago. Their civilization, based on hunting, farming and spiritual belief, evolved over several centuries to become the Anasazi. Their culture, traditions and language remain strong today and are part of their daily lives.
Each of the children who reside at the Foundation are unique, one of a kind, and have a story that’s passed down through the generations. Many of these children were taken from other Indian tribes and sent to boarding schools where they were separated from their families. Today, the children are reunited with their families in a loving and secure environment. The foundation is also home to many adopted Anasazi children and grandchildren, many of whom share the same dreams and beliefs that they themselves have had for as long as they can remember. Many of these children have been placed in foster homes or orphanages due to lack of available homes, but the Anasazi Children’s Foundation has helped many of these children to find their way to a wonderful new life as well.
“The Anasazi Children’s Foundation has helped countless Native American children in many ways. From providing homes to their adoptive parents and their children, to providing them with a positive and nurturing environment where they can learn their native culture, this wonderful organization provides many different opportunities to these wonderful children. These opportunities come in the form of tutoring programs, therapeutic camps, group counseling sessions, summer camp, and much more. As these children grow up, they have the opportunity to make contributions to the Native American community in areas of education, medicine, government and business, and so much more.
