ARIZONA 1.27 IS A STATE-WIDE MOVEMENT OF CHURCHES WORKING TOGETHER TO SEE EVERY CHILD IN FOSTER CARE PLACED IN A LOVING HOME.

We are looking for churches to join us and champion the cause of foster care and adoption. We work with you to develop a culture of ministry where ongoing recruitment happens and families are equipped and supported.

Arizona 1.27 helps you implement a holistic model where every member of your congregation has a way to engage in caring for children and families.

We ask all churches in the movement to agree to these core commitments:

OUR CORE COMMITMENTS

  • ico-path
