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.

Our program works with prospective families, youth in need, and local state departments to ensure that youth are placed into homes where they can feel safe and cared for.

It is an unfortunate reality that there are more youth in search of foster care than there are willing foster families. It is for this reason that we dedicate ourselves to guiding parents who come to us through the process of becoming a foster family as much as possible. Once a prospective family gets in contact with us, we work with them to understand their situation and get to know their long-term goals. VQ provides foster parents with comprehensive training and assists families in receiving a foster parent license. We firmly believe that there is a home for every child, and we make a concerted effort to ensure that we find the right home for every foster child that we place.

VQ continues to provide on-going support and resources to foster families in the community, promoting meetups and helping grow connections

VQ continues to provide support to foster families after youth have been established in the home, facilitating foster parent in-service training on a variety of topics such as adolescent behavioral management, the rights of foster children, how to navigate community resources, and understanding children who have special needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I have to do to become a foster parent?

To become a foster parent you must be at least 21 years of age, a legal resident of the United States, willing to participate in a home study, willing to complete foster parent training, and be knowledgeable, stable, mature, and nurturing. In addition, you demonstrate financial stability and space in your home, pass a criminal background check, and provide us with character references. Most importantly, however, you must have a big heart and a desire to make a difference.

Currently, these services are only able to be offered within the state of Arizona. However, we are always searching for opportunities to offer these services to other communities across the nation.

What services does VQ provide to foster parents?

VQ provides prospective foster parents with comprehensive training and assists them in receiving their foster parent license. After a foster child has been established in their foster home, VQ continues to offer support to foster parents with in-service training on topics like adolescent behavioral management, the rights of foster children, and understanding children with special needs.

What is the background for foster children in these programs?

VQ works with local state agencies to provide children in the foster care system with ideal homes in which they can feel cared for and respected. These children come from a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from abusive households to orphanages, but each of them is in need of a place to call home.
