Arizona Foster Care Review Board
1501 West Washington Street, Suite 128 Phoenix, Arizona 85007-3231
Each day we hear the stories about Arizona’s children entering the foster care system. As the number of abuse and neglect cases continues to increase and flow into our overburdened child protection system, the risk of children lingering in our system escalates to frightening proportions. However, there is a statewide volunteer program that CAN make a difference in the lives of these children.
The mission of the Foster Care Review Board is based upon a belief that each child has a right to, and is deserving of, a permanent home that provides nurturing, love, and protection. Towards this end, the mission of the Foster Care Review Board is accomplished in an atmosphere of trust, with dignity and respect maintained through participative involvement of all those having interest in the welfare of the child. Though the plan for each child may be tempered by a reality of what may be attainable from available resources, the best interest of the child always remains of paramount importance to the review board.
