At AASK, we know that the hard work for the foster family begins the day the foster child moves into their home. In addition to helpful services provided by the state, AASK provides a variety of services and programs to help support and nurture our foster families.
Monthly Reimbursement:Foster parents receive a monthly reimbursement for care, clothing and personal allowance.
Foster children are covered under their own state health care plan. All approved health care costs are paid by the State of Arizona.
For foster parents who work full-time, day care costs are covered in full or in part through the DES day care program.
Foster families are provided parenting breaks and time away.
AASK has exceptional support services created to strengthen and maintain families after placement.
