Learn How to Help Kids in Foster Care at Foster Care Awareness Day

Each month, almost 1,000 new children enter Arizona’s foster care system, which is already overflowing with more than 14,000 young people, many seeking a safe family environment. There is an urgent need for more foster parents but there are many other ways to help kids in foster care that don’t require as big of a commitment. Some of these volunteer opportunities include:

  • Volunteering for a foster care or adoption agency
  • Mentoring a child in foster care
  • Tutoring a child in foster care
  • Serving as a court-appointed advocate
  • Helping repair bicycles for foster kids
