ARIZONA FOSTER CARE AT A GLANCE
- There are over 14,000 children in the Arizona foster system
- In Arizona, we have 3,700 licensed foster families
- There are 2,220 children available for adoption
- James 1:27 explains that Christians are responsible for taking care of these children
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” – James 1:27
Arizona Faith and Families was created to rally the Christian church to respond to the crisis of children who are in need of homes. What sets Arizona Faith and Families apart from other agencies is the infusion of biblical training to prepare and equip parents for their family ministry. Since all Scripture is inspired by God (2 Tim 3:16), it should be our first and ultimate source of truth for how to approach foster care and adoption.
