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 Support Group.
Find agencies contracted with the state of Arizona here. Be sure to choose the county in which you live.
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.
