Recycle Your Bicycle for a Kid in Foster Care
Join us to help kids in foster care. No experience necessary ... but big smiles are delivered!

Help us give kids in Arizona's foster care system a great holiday.

Remember when you received your first bike? If you are like me, you remember the color, the shape and probably even the name. Many of the kids in foster care have never had their own bike. With this program we get them the joy of having their own bike. For many it is not just the excitement, it is also a way to get to school or work.

You can help by volunteering on a Saturday morning to help refurbish a bike or two. It doesn't matter if you are a bike expert or just want to lend a hand, we have a place where you can participate and help make a magicial, lifetime memory for a child in care. Volunteers are needed for 'power washing,' 'light mechanical,'
'heavy mechanical,' and 'detailing' bikes.

Mission Statement

The Arizona Association for Foster and Adoptive Parents is a non-profit, statewide organization that serves families who adopt children and provide foster and kinship care. Working in partnership with child welfare professionals and the community, our purpose is to support, educate, empower and provide a voice for Arizona's foster and adoptive families, with the goal of increasing the well-being and stability of Arizona's most vulnerable children.

Description

The Arizona Association for Foster and Adoptive Parents was founded in 2003 to support, empower and provide a unified voice for Arizona's foster, adoptive and kinship parents.

Over the years we have enjoyed many successes:

Our bi-monthly Town Hall series provides license renewal training credits while covering topics of interest to foster, adoptive and kinship parents such as tax tips for foster and adoptive parents, education issues for foster and adopted children, grief and loss for foster families, and pointers on how to navigate the various state systems involved in child welfare.

Our quarterly "Discussions with the Director" provide an opportunity for foster and adoptive parents to provide input to the Arizona Department of Economic Security in a two-hour discussion with the director of DES that is broadcast statewide.

Our annual Blue Ribbon event in May attracts more than 500 foster and adoptive families, CPS workers and licensing workers to recognize the nearly 10,000 children in the Arizona foster care system using blue ribbons and the families that care for them.

Established long term collaborative relationships with both local and national partners such as Arizona Friends of Foster Children, Casey Family Programs, and Major League Baseball!

Development and implementation of a statewide foster and adoptive parent mentor program.

The annual "Courage for Children" Awards dinner that honors foster and adoptive families for their loving care of children in Arizona's foster care system.
