CHOOSE AN AGENCY
Take the time to choose the agency that is right for you. Not only will they license you, they will continue to play a vital role in your success as a foster parent after licensure. Although all agencies must follow the State's licensing regulations and laws, some add unique regulations and guidelines.
We recommend that you speak with existing foster/adoptive parents to learn from their experiences with their agency.
One of the best places to meet foster/adoptive parents is at our Mission Foster Parents' Community.
IF YOU INTEND TO TAKE A CHURCH-HOSTED PS-MAPP CLASS, PLEASE CONNECT WITH AZ 1.27 PRIOR TO SELECTING YOUR AGENCY. AZ 1.27 WILL WORK WITH YOUR LICENSING AGENCY TO INSURE THAT REQUIREMENTS ARE MET PRIOR TO ATTENDING PS-MAPP.
