Committed to Your Family’s Success

Support for Foster and Adoption Families

To ensure you, your family, and your foster child thrive, we provide extensive support that far exceeds the requirements of Arizona’s Department of Child Safety.

Foster and Adoption Family Support Group

Christian Family Care’s support group exists to connect foster and adoptive parents through relevant training topics followed by a time to connect through conversation.

Most of our support group sessions are in-person and childcare is provided, however, we also offer a handful of virtual meetings throughout the year. Virtual meetings consist of 45-60 minutes of training and the rest of the time will be used to connect with one another and walk alongside each other in your journey as foster and adoptive parents.

After a child is placed in your home the state will pay you a monthly reimbursement to cover the cost of room, board, clothing, and supplies for the child. Rates are based on the age of the child and the extent of the care required. Arizona will also pay for the child’s medical, dental, prescription drug, and therapy expenses.

A Team of Professionals Dedicated to You

You will have access to our professional counseling and Christ-centered support services. We’re here to encourage you, to pray with you, and to respond to unexpected challenges or emergencies. By providing professional support services at no cost, we’re giving every family the tools they need to succeed. When a family is successful, then every child will have the best chance to experience a stable, Christ-centered home.

By God’s grace, this strategic approach to foster care has transformed the lives of thousands of traumatized children and the families who welcomed them into their homes.

John was defiant and disruptive at school. He would curse and storm out of class. But his foster parents, Kelley and John Sr., could see through the anger. They knew his heart was hurting. “We had no doubt that God had a reason for us to parent John and with each day that passed,” Kelley said.
