Arms of Love Foster Care is a ministry of Arizona Baptist Children's Services & Family Ministries (ABCS). ABCS is a faith-based non-profit with seven ministries and one mission: to provide hope and care to hurting children and families through Christ-centered ministries. Through these seven ministries, ABCS serves the full spectrum of Arizona families, from unborn babies to seniors. Arms of Love partners with the state to provide foster care and adoption services for those wishing to provide safe, loving homes for the over 14,000 children in care.
How is Arms of Love Different?We believe that the Church is God's Plan A to care for "the least of these"; that the call for Christians to care for the Orphans and Widows, found in James 1:27, is a mandate to His people. Arms of Love views foster care as a mission field and foster families as missionaries: foster parents get to minister in their own living rooms as they open their hearts and homes to children, as well as care for these children's varied and often challenging needs.
Opportunities to show the love and hope found in Jesus Christ are endless as families serve not only children, but all those involved in their lives. We encourage foster families to support and minister to the children’s birth families while they work to break destructive family cycles. For each child, the ministry opportunities stretch beyond one child to entire families and future generations.Arms of Love is a ministry of Arizona Baptist Children’s Services & Family Ministries. We are a licensing agency contracted by the state of Arizona to work with foster parents. Our goal is to develop and maintain open, supportive relationships with foster families as they serve hurting families with the love of Christ. We also have 3 Foster Care Principles that each team abides by across Arizona: excellence comes from team work that is honest and reflective, support families and build relationships in ways that exceed expectations, and humbly impact those you serve for God.
Arms of Love is a member of the No Child Waiting Coalition and the Christian Alliance for Orphans.
