Mission Statement

To help support foster and adoptive families for children in Arizona that are placed in the child welfare system in the custody of the State of Arizona. We provide the following services to foster and adoptive families: Training on topics related to caring for children who have experienced abuse and neglect State-provided financial support to help cover the expenses related to caring for a child in foster care State-provided medical and dental coverage for children in foster care Child care assistance for working foster parents Liability insurance

Description

There are approximately 1,5000 children in our state who are in need of safe and loving temporary and permanent homes. Deep cuts to state budgets for child abuse prevention and other support services has left many families in crisis, and cases of abuse and neglect have increased dramatically. Our state’s foster care system is overburdened and the Department of Child Safety (DCS) is understaffed. This leaves many children in need of immediate shelter. The State of Arizona, as well as the many agencies that are members of the KIDS Consortium, provide a number of supports for families that foster or adopt. There are several ways to help Arizona's Children.
