In 1983, concerned members of Arizona’s Foster Care Review Board realized the state foster system simply wasn’t able to do enough to help rebuild the lives of children placed in foster care. These members founded the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation (AFFCF). We made our first award of $29.61 in December 1984.”
