Have you thought about becoming a foster parent?
A Place to Call Home helps find loving and nurturing homes for children in foster care throughout Arizona. All children deserve a loving, family home that helps them feel safe.
We offer foster care to children that have been removed from their homes due a number of different reasons, including abuse, neglect, or abandonment. A Place to Call Home is a culturally aware agency and licenses families to care for children from Tribal Communities.
Child Developmental Homes (CDH)
Developmental homes allow you to provide care in your own home/residence. They are specialized family homes for children with developmental disabilities. Children thrive in the individualized setting as opposed to living in a group home setting. As a developmental home provider, you will provide a child with a stable, loving home. You will be their advocate. You will teach them life skills. You will make a positive impact on their lives.
Children with developmental disabilities need to be placed in a home that is able to meet their needs. School-age children would attend school. A child may need assistance in meeting developmental milestones and need extra assistance with self-help and socialization skills.
A Place To Call Home also offers placement for Adult Developmental Homes (ADH). For more information about becoming an ADH host home provider please visit our host home page.
As a licensing agency, our responsibility is to assist you with the licensing process. Your family will have a family specialist assigned to you to assist with both licensing and ongoing needs. The family specialist will work with you to build a profile based on your skills and family dynamics.
Our placement team works to match a child in need of a home with your profile. We will be an advocate for you and your placement to ensure needs are met. We will assist in finding services and resources to assist your family and placement.
A Place to Call Home has a behavior specialist to assist your family in learning new and creative ways to manage behaviors. We have nurses to train families in any medical care situation (i.e. feeding tubes, breathing treatments) that may be required for placement.
A Place To Call Home is Multi-contracted.
