Arizona’s foster care system manages an unprecedented 17,000 foster children today. Through no fault of their own, children who enter foster care have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, abandonment and/or drug exposure. Once they are in Arizona’s foster care system, they are often scared and confused. What the children need most is to live in a stable, loving home, knowing that they have someone who cares and who they can count on.
Because there are so many foster children in Arizona who need loving homes, there is a vital need for additional foster families throughout Maricopa County. AASK is here to provide family support so that every foster care placement is nurtured. Our dedicated foster care program gives families the resources and education to have a positive impact on the lives of foster children in the state’s care.
To learn more about some of the children available for foster care or adoption, visit our “Meet the Kids” Gallery to see their photos, bios and videos.
