We believe in emotional, financial, mental, and physical assistance for your clients during the adoption process. Our agency is unique in that we have a food pantry and a maternity closet accessible to our clients. We also assist our clients with locating and using state resources that are accessible to them. We understand all aspects of adoption as we have staff members who were adopted, have adopted, and have placed a child for adoption. We understand what it means to need financial help and the emotions that go along with placing a child for adoption.
During your pregnancy and after delivery, we want to make sure you are as healthy as possible. We will assist you in getting on AHCCCS, Arizona’s state insurance, and provide transportation to your doctor appointments. If you are unable to qualify for AHCCCS, we will do our best to make sure that you are still able to receive medical care and possibly have it privately funded.
When you are pregnant, it is so important for you to feel safe and secure. We contract with local hotels to be able to house you immediately if you qualify. We also work with apartment locators and long term housing options as well. If you have an adoption plan and already have housing and need financial assistance to maintain your residence, we may be able to assist with that as well.
Free Counseling Services
We provide free counseling for women who are in the process of deciding or have decided to place their baby for adoption. We use an independent, licensed counselor who specializes in working with women in the process of adoption. She has worked with hundreds of women and can even support you during your delivery if you so choose.

I got pregnant and I was using drugs really bad. I decided to get clean. When I got clean I went down to the New Times ad and I found the adoption agency. I called them and they were really helpful. They helped me through my pregnancy.
I choose adoption. There’s several reasons why I chose adoption, because I feel like it’s the right thing for me to do, and four of my other kids are adopted out, and I feel like it’s a good thing for me to share my blessings.
Well, it started off I got pregnant and my boyfriend at the time was on house arrest. I didn’t know that he was going to do prison time for a long time. That’s when I started thinking, “What am I doing to do? What can I do? How can I afford this?”
