We train, educate and support foster and adoptive parents, and provide emergency shelter for children who need a place to sleep. Our Emergency Children’s Shelters have provided a safe haven for more than 29,000 children since 1977.
We need your help to provide care for some of the more than 19,000 Arizona children who are in need of a home. Our Foster Care and Adoption programs will guide you through the licensing or certification process so you can open your home and heart to a child in need.
