In 1997 Catholic Community Services of Southern Arizona, Catholic Social Service of Central & Northern Arizona (now Catholic Charities), and Devereux Arizona began discussions around forming a collaboration to provide Child Welfare Services throughout the state of Arizona. This collaboration known as Arizona Partnership for Children or AzPaC was granted its first contract to deliver the Family Builders program in Maricopa and Pima Counties in January of 1998.
AzPaC became a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) in November of 1998. Since that time AzPaC has delivered services for the Department of Child Safety (DCS) and First Things First. DCS Programs include the following: Arizona Families F.I.R.S.T, In Home Services, Foster Parent recruitment and licensing, Adoptive Parent recruitment and licensing, Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children (ICPC), and Parent Aide.
