Becoming a Foster or Adoptive Parent

Are you interested in becoming a foster or adoptive family?

Your next step is to attend an orientation to learn more about the process to become licensed in the state of Arizona. We partner with AZ 1.27 to offer a faith-based orientation, accepted by every agency, that will get you started in the official process while grounding you in your church family and helping you lay a spiritual foundation for foster care and adoption.

 

Steps to Becoming a Foster or Adoptive Family:

  • Attend an Extended Faith Orientation
    • This orientation covers all the necessary state material in addition to some additional faith material.
  • Attend Basic Training
    • A one-day course that prepares families with the Biblical call to the orphan and foster child, reiterating steps in the process and the realities of caring for a child from a hard place.
  • Choose an Agency
  • Attend PS-MAPP Training
  • Complete a Home Study & Life Safety Inspection
  • Receive License / Certificate
  • Attend a Support Group – coming soon!
