Arms of Love Foster care ministry has provided children in foster care with safe, loving, Christ-centered homes, either on a temporary or permanent basis during a time when they are most in need since 2001. Arizona has approximately 850 teens leaving foster care annually with no permanent family and minimal independent living skills. Teens aging out of foster care are at high risk of pregnancy, homelessness, human trafficking, drug addiction, incarceration or even death.We understand this is not God’s plan for their lives. Three of the main components to a successful adult transition are: at least one supportive adult mentor, affordable housing and education or employment. Arms of Love is taking the next step by providing supportive housing to young women between the ages of 18-21 who are emancipated from foster care. Our goal is to provide them with housing and match them with lifelong connections through mentorship. We will embrace and support these young adults to help them become self-sustaining.

Throughout the New Testament we see Jesus interact with those who have spiritual and physical needs in a specific way; He first met the physical needs and then addressed their spiritual need. If someone was in pain, ill, hungry, He always met that need first. He did this because of His compassion but more importantly so that barriers to listening to the message of salvation could be removed. We believe that the same principle applies to the home we are providing for emancipated youth. We want to meet the physical needs of providing a safe, clean, functional environment for these young adults so that they can focus on mentor relationships, discipleship, and life skill development-in order that they may understand and be transformed by the saving love of Christ.
Be a Part of the Solution
Arms of Love's supportive housing program is a pilot project, providing one home to 4 young women aging out of foster care. Each youth coming into the housing program will set goals in order to grow and learn to be independent adults. We plan to support their goals by having our community surround these young adults and help them achieve and succeed.
How you can get involved:
Our home is a 5 bedroom 3 bathroom house that we are currently in the process of renovating in order to create a hopeful and peaceful space for these young adults.
