Financial Assistance

If you are pregnant and are planning to place your baby for adoption- you will pay no fees for your adoption. All adoption services for you are free. Additionally, you may be eligible to receive financial assistance with your living expenses.

Living expenses may include:

  • Rent and utilities
  • Food (We have a non-perishable food pantry on site.)
  • Transportation
  • Maternity Clothing (We have a maternity clothing closet on site.)
  • Cell Phone Service
  • Medical Expenses
  • Adoption Counseling
  • And much more

Building Arizona Families and AZ Pregnancy Help along with our adoptive families can pay your living expenses during your pregnancy.

The amount of financial assistance for adoption will depend on your living situation and your current financial situation. We understand that your living and financial situation may change throughout your pregnancy as well.

During your intake, we will gather information about your living and financial situation and start to see how we can help! The State of Arizona allows birth mothers to receive financial assistance during and shortly after pregnancy for reasonable living expenses. In Arizona, all living expenses are approved and regulated through our court system. As an adoption agency, if you are homeless, we can help you with housing the same day you begin your adoption intake and start making your adoption plan. Our adoption case workers are experts in creating adoption plans and assisting you with financial assistance.

Answers To Your Common Questions

I'm ready to begin, what do I do now?
The best thing to do is to call our 24 hour/7 day a week phone number at 623-695-4112 or our toll-free number, 1-800-340-9665.   We will answer any additional questions you may have and then schedule an appointment with one of our case workers.  We can provide transportation to our office located off the I-17 Access Road and Northern, where we can begin assisting you with your adoption plan.  
What will this cost me?
All services are free of charge.  
How?
Prior to delivery, we will assist you in developing a Hospital Plan.  You will get to make the following decisions, and we will make sure we give the hospital a copy of your plan so everyone involved in your care knows how you would like your delivery to go:

  • When the adoptive parents come to the hospital?
  • Who will your support system be at the hospital?
  • If the adoptive parents can be in the delivery room?
  • Do you want a natural delivery or would you prefer using medication?
  • Who will hold the baby first?
  • Will the baby stays in your room, the nursery, or in a room with the adoptive family?
  • Will you or the adoptive family care for the baby?
  • You can allow them to care for the baby, you can do it yourself, or you can all do it together. The baby can stay in your room, the adoptive parents’ room, or the nursery.
  • How much time you would like alone with the baby?
  • Would you like pictures of you and the baby?
  • What would you like discharge from the hospital to look like?
What about the baby’s father?
The baby’s father may choose to be part of the adoption plan. He can receive letters and pictures, as well as visits, if he so chooses. The baby’s father may also choose to not be a part of the adoption plan. Either option is fine. We can go over the adoption laws regarding birth fathers in Arizona with you in person so you are fully educated on what his rights may be.
I’m not sure who my baby’s father is. Can I still place my baby for adoption?
Yes. If you don’t know the father’s identity, we can still help you proceed.
May I choose the family for my baby?
Yes, of course. This is your baby and your adoption plan to create, including choosing the family (if you would like to do so.) We present adoptive family profiles to you based upon your preferences, including: race, family structure, religion, location (in-state or out-of-state), and number of children currently in the home.
How do I know the family I select is safe?
All families must be approved to adopt, and the approval process can be very intense. The prospective adoptive family must go through a home study approval process through a licensed adoption agency. A home study includes an FBI check, a state criminal check, a child abuse check, medical exams, an inspection of their home, examination of financial records, and multiple recommendations. In addition, if you chose to, you may meet the family.
Can I send my child gifts, pictures, etc.?
Yes you may, and often the adoptive parents may send the same to you.  
Can I choose what type of adoption I would like to do: open, semi-open or closed?
Yes. We believe in empowering women. You may choose either open, semi-open, or closed adoption and we can explain both options so you may choose the best option for you and your baby.
What is an Open Adoption?
Open adoption is choosing the family for your baby, sharing information, and agreeing to ongoing contact throughout the years. This contact may include phone calls, visiting with each other and the child, sharing photos and letters, and/or corresponding via e-mail.
What is a Semi-Open Adoption?
Semi-open adoption is choosing the family for your baby, but the relationship does not include the sharing of identifying information. After the baby has been placed for adoption, many semi-open adoptions include emailing photos and letters between adoptive families and birth families.  
What is a Closed Adoption?
Closed adoption is not choosing a family or having any contact before or after delivery.  
Are you a Christian Adoption Agency?
We are a private non-profit agency and not affiliated with a specific church. Many of our staff members are Christians, as well as many of the organizations we work with. We do not have specific requirements regarding religion to work with our agency. To some extent, the focus on secular and Christian values is consistent with biblical ways of thinking, where the issue is never just what one does but how and why it is done. As a social service agency, our list of core values include; remaining non-profit, remaining an agency that provides adoptive and birth families with professional adoption services, and remaining true to what we believe in and know to be true in regards to humanity. Additionally, AZ Pregnancy Help and Building Arizona Families are dedicated to breaking down the barriers and obstacles of adoption and helping every child to find their forever family.
