Court Improvement Program

Court Improvement is committed to the safety, permanency, and well-being of Arizona’s foster children.  We are proud of our collaborative work with all 15 County Superior Courts.  We are actively engaged with the legal, child welfare, and service communities and are constantly looking for ways to do our common work more effectively.  Court Improvement is focused on positive outcomes for the children and families involved in Arizona’s dependency court system.   



 June is National Reunification Month
  We Believe in the Resiliency and Strength of Families!

To support safe and stable families, returning children from foster care to their homes often requires intensive, family-centered services, tailored to each family’s circumstances and addressing the issue(s) causing the child to enter foster care. Many different strategies that build on family strengths are used throughout the reunification process including family engagement; maintaining family and cultural connections; connecting families to evidenced-based services in the community; regular and frequent visits among family members with the caseworker present; and parent education. National Reunification Month recognizes the people and ongoing efforts around the country that help families stay together. It is also a time to recommit to strengthening, improving, and increasing those efforts all year long.
