“We spent many years talking with different foster families and learning about the different agencies throughout the Valley. Ultimately, A Place To Call Home was the agency that had the best reviews from their foster families. They are available 24 hours a day, they actively recruit respite providers to offer their foster families a break when needed, and hold monthly trainings. After being a licensed foster family through A Place To Call Home for 5 years now, I must say that they have gone above and beyond our expectations.
Whether you are looking to adopt, foster or provide guardianship for a child A Place To Call Home is the agency to provide these services! While the system can be complicated, A Place To Call Home’s staff is quick to learn any changes to the rules and regulations and assist their families in navigating through the many complicated laws and various regulations from both the state and tribal courts. In the years that we’ve been with them, they have helped us personally through all of these journeys. We’ve been fortunate enough to adopt 2 children from foster care and obtain guardianship of yet another.
Again, A Place to Call Home has years of experience working with state as well as the local tribal communities and assisted us in completing both an adoption and a guardianship with the tribal community. We were also able to experience one adoption on National Adoption Day thanks to the recommendation of our Family Specialist with A Place To Call Home. What a special day that we will always remember and had it not been for the recommendation of the Family Specialist we would have never known of all of the special activities on National Adoption Day.
While our initial family of four to some seems just right, our dreams of having a large family with many laughing children running through our house wasn’t a possibility without A Place To Call Home coming alongside us and helping us add three more children to our forever family. We are forever thankful to A Place To Call Home and their expertise, professionalism, and ability to do right by the children that they place in their foster homes.” ~ Libby
“After 20 years of marriage and 17 years of infertility we finally started our family via adoption. We now have two beautiful toddlers with our last name. From the first visit with the recruiter through our adoption finalization in court, A Place To Call Home has been with us each step of the way. The trainers did a great job preparing us for the reality of fostering and adoption. Our Adoption specialist guided us through the process and answered all of our many questions. We are so amazed to finally have our forever family, and are so thankful to A Place to Call Home.”

What are staff say about our amazing families
Why we have amazing families as told by our Family Specialist, Jennifer Crawley
We have an AMAZING family, because they have always been an advocate for children who have been placed in their home. They don’t see the children for the circumstance, but their goals is to give them the most love and affection and teaching while in their care.
They have been on a journey to find a child a forever home, and will so be blessed with the opportunity to do so. Although adoption has be…en their goal they never stopped at the chance of helping other children in need. I had the chance to speak to them and asked them “at what moment did they know their princess was the one for them?” and they shared “instantly, once we laid eyes on her we knew she would be a part of our family!” it has been a long journey for them but each moment of helping kids and providing their little girl with a forever home has made everything worth it.
I have never had to ask anything more of them because they have always seem to go over and beyond advocating, reaching out to case worker, staying on top of each child needs, and making sure once they left they knew that if no other time, they were loved while in their home.
This is why they are AMAZING!!
