Foster Care & Adoption

Arizona Faith and Families

There are over 13,000 children in foster care in Arizona, and nearly 2,000 of those live in a group home setting. Arizona Faith and Families looks to prayerfully and biblically encourage, educate, and empower Christians all throughout the state to help provide these children the loving home they deserve. Recruiting families and walking with them through the licensing process helps meet this need “one loving family” at a time. Through our partnership we help broadcast their message to the church and support foster parents from the moment they begin the process all the way through the time they are actively fostering.

Christian Family Care

All children deserve the opportunity to grow up in a loving and nurturing family, but many aren’t given that opportunity.

Illuminate’s partnership with Christian Family Care helps provide respite care, support to foster families and to those children and families attending their Preschool
