Orientation is an introduction to foster care, adoption and other ways one can find their place in engaging Arizona’s child welfare system.
The Orientation will emphasize the licensing process but a wide variety of support roles will also be discussed. If you are interested in support roles this will also be an excellent time to understand a child who is coming from a hard place (helpful if you want to be a mentor, etc.) and it will also provide a better understanding of what a foster or adoptive family will go through (making you a more helpful asset to a family Wrap Around Team).
Orientation will emphasize that our faith is both our motivation for doing foster care, adoption and support as well as our sustaining grace in this ministry.
Lastly, after Orientation you will be encouraged to go deeper-either into Basic Training. Basic Training is an in-depth look into the ministry of foster care and adoption.
There is not childcare for this event. but children are welcome to attend.
