PHOENIX, AZ — Arizona Baptist Children's Services & Family Ministries was established in 1960 as a home for displaced children by Arizona Southern Baptists.

For more than 60 years, they now have seven ministries with the same mission: to provide hope and care to hurting children and families through Christ-centered ministries.

Arizona Baptist Children's Services & Family Ministries (ABCS) is a faith-based, non-profit social service ministry that serves Arizona families of all ages, from infants to seniors.
