At AASK we know the special challenges kinship caregivers face. We’re committed to helping you and the children placed in your home.
“I don’t have to worry about how I’m going to care for these children because the resources are there for me.” - Brenda, Kinship foster parent
Having a child in foster care dropped off at your door can be overwhelming. AASK is here to help.
AASK understands what kinship caregivers go through because we have helped hundreds of families navigate Arizona’s foster care system. Each family is assigned a dedicated kinship family specialist who offers individualized support and care throughout the entire process.
And we listen.
Enrolling in the AASK foster care licensing program gives you access to a wide range of resources and family support groups.
Children in foster care do better when placed with relatives because they have an established relationship. Research shows children living with kinship caregivers are at lower risk of having behavioral problems or trouble in school, giving them a greater opportunity to succeed.
The benefits of licensure for kinship caregivers are just as clear. Licensure makes you eligible for state monthly reimbursements that are more than 10 times greater than that provided non-licensed caregivers.
You are there to help a child. We are here to help you.
