Question: What is my first step to getting licensed?

Your first step to becoming a foster parent is to attend orientation. If you have an agency already in mind, you can contact them directly and they can sign you up for their agency specific orientation. If you are not sure who you want to be your licensing agency, you can choose to go to a more general orientation that gives you the information and the tools needed to move forward in picking an agency.

Arizona does offer faith based and non-faith based orientations so that you can pick the best fit for your family. You can find out more about the differences between the orientations as well as upcoming classes available by checking out
