What is the difference between foster care and adoption?
Foster Care: Foster parents provide love and consistency to the children with the understanding that the time they have with them is temporary.
Adoption: The adoption process gives families the opportunity to become a child’s forever family. These children are in need of permanent, safe, loving and supportive homes. Child Crisis Arizona’s foster care and adoption program is committed to helping children in out-of-home care by licensing and certifying parents for foster care and adoption. We provide extensive support to the families we serve and are proud of our low disruption rate. Our combination of services and support, along with realistic training, prepares families for the placement of children of all ages and backgrounds.
Child Crisis Arizona works with both single- and two-parent families and has no limitations on religious beliefs, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Additionally, we actively seek foster and adoptive parents from the Native American and LGBT communities.
