Mesa Family Advocacy Center 

The Mesa Family Advocacy Center was established in 1993 by the Mesa Police Department to provide comprehensive, compassionate assistance to victims of violence. At the Mesa Family Advocacy Center criminal justice joins forces with helping professions to reduce the trauma of physical and sexual abuse. Our multi-disciplinary team includes police, advocates, prosecuting attorneys, counselors, child safety workers and on-site medical personnel working together to transform victimization into empowerment.

"The biggest step toward the healing process was being empowered by the police, thanks for doing what you do."


The Center provides services for victims of sexual and domestic violence including investigation, forensic interviews, victim assistance, therapy, and medical services.

"Simply put, your performance on our behalf was awesome, we could not have asked for more. You are the answer to many heart felt prayers."



We are always looking for dedicated volunteers through the Mesa Police Department’s Volunteers In Police Service (VIPS) program. Contact Kylie Clore at for more information. Donations of new toys, gift cards, cell phones and full-size toiletry items are appreciated. We cannot accept used clothing or stuffed toys.  To learn more about volunteer opportunities at the Center, or to donate contact Shelly Ward at 480-644-2036.

"Your pursuit for justice and desire to protect the public are indeed hallmarks of your profession."
