Foster, Kinship and Adoptive Families

Jacobs Law – HB2442

Arizona Complete Health-Complete Care Plan works hard to meet the needs of children in the custody of the Department of Child Safety (DCS) and live with foster and kinship families as well as adoptive families.

In March 2016, a law was passed in Arizona. This law is called HB2442 or Jacob’s Law.  This law makes it easier for foster, kinship and adoptive parents to get behavioral health services for children.   

A few of the positive changes include:

  • More services and new programs;
  • New ways to enroll in services;
  • No Wrong Door policy for children involved with DCS to receive behavioral health services;
  • Better communication with foster, kinship, and adoptive families;
  • 24/7 Foster Care Hotline for foster and adoptive parents to get help when needed
