FOSTER CARE/ ADOPTION PARENT CHECKLIST Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster or adoptive parent. The willingness of people like you to help Arizona’s children is part of what makes our State great! The first step is to view the five-part orientation video series. If you have not yet viewed all five videos, or if you want to watch the videos again, you can find them here.

Your next step in the process is to select the licensing agency with whom you wish to work. Remember, you need to select an agency based on the county where you live. You can use this Matrix to find agencies in your county. DCS encourages prospective foster and adoptive parents to interview several licensing agencies before making a final decision. It’s important to find an agency with whom you are comfortable because they will be asking you deeply personal questions and will frequently be in your home. As a reminder, here’s the link to our tips for selecting an agency. We know this is a big decision. At any time throughout the process, you can email us with questions at or call us at 1-877 KIDS-NEEDU (1-877-543-7633). We’re happy to talk with you during business hours, or you can leave us a message and we’ll call you back.
