The Arizona Association for Foster and Adoptive Parents was founded in 2003 to serve the foster, adoptive and kinship families who care for Arizona’s most vulnerable children. We are all volunteers, and all foster and adoptive parents.
We believe there is strength in numbers, and in speaking with one voice for Arizona’s foster and adoptive families. Please join us and help to make all of us stronger and better in our service to the children in Arizona!
We celebrated our 10 year anniversary in 2013 and now look toward an exciting 2015. We will be honoring volunteers, sponsoring events and directly helping our members and families.
AZAFAP is also inviting all foster, adoptive and kinship families to join our Association for FREE. Premier memberships, that include extra member benefits, are still available for $50 for a couple and $35 for individual membership.
KARE Family Center
Casey Family Programs is a partner agency in the Kinship and Adoption Resource and Education (KARE) Family Center, which opened in Tucson in 1983. Our office is co-located at the center with Arizona’s Children Association. The KARE Family Center provides specialized case management and other services to relatives and non-relatives caring for youth, as well as clinical case management for youth and families who need help attaining or maintaining permanency, and for young adults transitioning from foster care. We are part of Casey Family Programs’ Child and Family Services team, which also operates field offices in California, Idaho, Texas and Washington, all focused on the urgent and relentless pursuit of securing lifelong, permanent family connections for every child.
