Contact Devereux if you have a background working with children or adults with complex needs. Devereux is currently recruiting for Therapeutic Foster Parents for children and adults in the Tucson area.
Why should I get involved?
Without positive adult role models in a family-like setting, many foster youth will end up in group shelters, incarcerated, homeless, pregnant, dependent on drug and alcohol or worse, dead. Your skills can make a difference! If you would prefer caring for adults, we need supportive homes for our adult population as well. Our clients are mentally ill and need help with basic living skills.
What skills do I need?
Our therapeutic foster parents are financially stable, patient, flexible and have an incredible sense of humor. Also, a minimum of one-year experience working with children and/or adults with complex issues. Our Devereux Therapeutic Foster Parents are single, partnered, cohabitating, or married.
Will I be paid or is it a volunteer opportunity?
You will receive up to $3000 non-taxable reimbursement per child, per month. You must first go through training and become a licensed therapeutic foster provider.
Why choose Devereux?
Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health has been providing services to Arizona children and families since 1967. Devereux was the first organization in the state to receive the Human Right’s Campaign (HRC) “All Children-All Families” in 2012 for our LGBTQ foster care program.
They have maintained the seal and in 2019, were the first and only organization in the state to receive the Innovator Seal for our continued work in supporting equality in healthcare for the LGBTQ community.
