Serving the Tucson community for over 49 years.

Becoming a foster parent takes time and commitment, and we are here to help.

Foster families play a vital role in helping children who have experienced trauma by:

  • Providing a stable, loving home
  • Supporting the biological family to help them heal and grow
  • Working in partnership with other professionals to meet the child’s unique needs
  • Patiently addressing the child’s medical, behavioral and emotional needs
  • Attending trainings to develop and maintain skills relevant to foster care

Get Involved

Casa de los Niños hosts a meet & greet on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM where you can ask questions and learn more about the process.

We welcome single and two-parent families and have no restrictions based on religious beliefs, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. We provide extensive support to families who are raising relative children.
