VQ Foster Care

VQ’s Foster and Adoptive Service program strives to connect children and youth with caring and committed families. VQ offers a comprehensive program that works to unite youth in need with loving and works to place youth in awareness of foster care opportunities in the community to help meet the shortage of foster families in the United States. We believe that no child should go without a home and we dedicate ourselves to making that belief a reality.

AZ Pathfinder Homes

The Pathfinder Homes are 5- 10 bed residential programs that aim to provide assistance to youth in transitioning to more permanent living situations - homes, independent living, foster care, or more appropriate residential programs. With strong staff to serve as role models and a nurturing environment, we help youth in these programs develop life skills that can guide them once they leave our care.
