Educating & Empowering Arizona's Families

Question: Is there a way to expedite the training process (to become a foster/adoptive parent)?

There are several agencies that offer expedited training classes. Although the time in the classroom is not decreased, you are able to spend more hours in training each week to allow you to finish much quicker. Here is a list of some agencies that we are aware of that offer expedited training.


Rise Services Inc – Contact Michelle Zelaya at

AASK- Contact Russ Funk at

Community Provider of Enrichment Services- Contact Sandra Toney at

Christian Family Care- Contact Scott Hord at


There may be other agencies that also offer accelerated classes. If this is important to you, be sure to ask this question in the interviewing process.


Thank you for your great question! If you have questions, send them to #youaskedfa or
