Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family


The Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) is a cabinet-level agency that administers state and federal grant programs and engages stakeholders across all sectors throughout Arizona to improve services and service delivery to our citizens. Through a trauma-informed lens, GOYFF develops programs, coalitions, strategies, and initiatives to support Governor Katie Hobbs' priorities related to workforce development, substance abuse prevention, human trafficking, sexual & domestic violence, juvenile justice, aging, and child well-being. GOYFF also serves as the Governor's faith-based office and administers the state's AmeriCorps program. As part of this work, GOYFF staffs and convenes nine of the Governor's councils and commissions.
