There is new help available for Arizonans thinking about becoming foster parents.
The Department of Economic Security is teaming up with Magellan of Arizona to create what is being called the Foster Care Toolkit. The object is to explain what it means and what is required to be a foster parent.
Shawn Thiele of Magellan said the toolkit contains information on community resources that may be needed by foster parents.
"That would include things like food, medical, support groups or education groups and training," Thiele said.
