A North Central woman is one of the new board members for the Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona.
Amanda Ho recently became part of the board, along with five other new members. Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona is a non-profit organization that alters children’s trauma to resilience by engaging them in the arts. It provides programs that promote self-expression, safety and a sense of belonging.
Ho is director of State Regulatory Affairs at Arizona Public Service, where she works with state regulators and external stakeholders on public policy and compliance issues. She likes serving on the board and on the Free Arts Development Committee. Ho grew up in Arizona and said she wants the state and Phoenix to “be a place where people want to live, and want to raise their children.”
Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona, founded in 1993, delivers programs through 900 volunteer mentors and artists, who serve more than 8,000 children a year via partnerships with 43 social service welfare agencies across Maricopa County. It is based at 352 E. Camelback Road. To learn more, visit freeartsaz.org.
