Getting Started as a Devereux Arizona Foster Parent

How the foster care licensing process works:

Step 1

A Devereux Arizona foster care specialist will meet with you to discuss the qualifications needed to become a foster parent; how Devereux will support you; and answer any additional questions or concerns you might have about the licensing process or our therapeutic foster care program.

Step 2

You will sign up for pre-licensure training. You also will be given paperwork, asking you about your background, references, family history, etc.

Step 3

You will collaborate with your assigned Devereux foster care specialist who will review your paperwork. Your specialist also will come to your home to complete a home study and preliminary safety inspection. When you feel prepared, the state will conduct a final safety inspection, and then your foster care application can be submitted. After the state approves, you will receive your therapeutic foster care license.
