We’re Giving Children Hope and a Future

Christian Family Care is driven by a foundational belief: a permanent, nurturing family is vital to every child’s success.

Transforming Lives Across Arizona

We see a future where every vulnerable child is loved and nurtured in a Christ-centered family. To make that vision a reality, Christian Family Care partners with families, churches, and caring neighbors like you to provide comprehensive adoption and foster care services, along with extensive counseling and support programs for children, families, and women struggling with unplanned pregnancies.

Our mission is to strengthen families and serve at-risk children in the name of Jesus Christ. With your prayers and support, we can provide loving families and lasting hope for Arizona’s most vulnerable children.


History, Funding, Impact!

Since Kay Ekstrom founded Christian Family Care in 1982, thousands of children that came here in crisis are now part of new, healthy families. As a private nonprofit, 501(c)(3) social services agency, we gladly help any child or family in need regardless of color, culture, disability, ethnic group, gender, race, religion, or socioeconomic status.

We are licensed by the state of Arizona and accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) since 2002. A portion of our funding comes from contracts with the State, as well as insurance companies and individuals we serve. However, those fees do not fully cover our expenses because we provide services that go above and beyond what is required by the State. We depend on private donors, grants, foundations, and other fundraising activities.

We treasure your support and strive to provide outstanding financial stewardship: 84¢ of every dollar donated goes directly to services for vulnerable and traumatized children, to meet their deepest needs of love, family, and security.

Performance & Quality Improvement (PQI)

Christian Family Care is committed to excellence. It is CFC’s intent to provide the highest quality services to our clients and community members. Each quarter, CFC uses Performance and Quality Improvement (PQI) as an agency-wide tool to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. The PQI process includes reviewing client and stake holder input, diverse data, and developing a formal “Action Plan” if there is an opportunity for growth that is identified. CFC strives to improve all of our programs and services to fit the needs of the children and families that we serve.
