Our Leadership

Darcy Olsen
Darcy OlsenFounder & CEO

Darcy Olsen founded the Center for the Rights of Abused Children because she believes every child deserves a safe and loving home. The seeds for the Center for the Rights of Abused Children were planted in 2010 when Darcy felt inspired to foster. “We have newborns sleeping in social service offices,” the social worker told her. “If you could open a crib, we’d appreciate it.” So, instead of fostering a teen as she’d planned, Darcy left the hospital cradling an infant with neonatal abstinence syndrome. In a few short years, she’d fostered ten. 

Tim Keller

As such, he’s particularly proud that in 2021 the Center for the Rights of Abused Children secured the rights of all children in Arizona’s foster system to be represented by legal counsel.
