About

Foster families are heroes. We find them next door, down the street and all over Arizona.  Perhaps you are part of a foster family — if so — thank you. Each foster family is a precious part of our community, and oftentimes, we don’t tell them how much they are truly appreciated.

Arizona loves foster families. To honor their dedication to the children in their care, and to demonstrate how much we appreciate the love, hope, encouragement and safety they provide every day, we invite all Arizona foster and kinship families to fun, family-friendly events.

The Arizona Blue Ribbon planning team is comprised of foster families, and business, community, nonprofit and government organizations with the sole purpose of celebrating Arizona’s foster families.   The fiscal agent for the Arizona Blue Ribbon is Hope & A Future, a 501(c)(3) organization.  You may reach the planning team via email at info@arizonablueribbon.org.

The Arizona Blue Ribbon is a community initiative with support from the Arizona Department of Economic Security, the Arizona Department of Child Safety, and the Governor’s Office of Faith and Community Partnerships.
