You’re Never Alone
When you begin your foster care journey with Christian Family Care, we provide extensive training and guidance to prepare you for the challenges ahead.
You’ll begin with training through Foster Parent College. But these services don’t stop when a child enters your home. On the contrary, our commitment to you grows.
- A Christian Family Care Family Specialist will regularly visit your home to provide support.
- Eligible working parents may receive childcare assistance from the Arizona Department of Economic Security.
- There’s also a respite program to provide your foster child with short-term care, so that you have time to run errands, rest, or take care of other personal needs.
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 there 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.
