Arizona’s foster-care cases rose over decade, as national numbers fell

WASHINGTON — Arizona saw the number of kids in its foster care system rise significantly from 2002-2012, a time when most other states were posting sharp drops in their foster care rolls, according to new federal data.

The report by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families said Arizona was one of 11 states with an increase in foster children and one of only two, along with Texas, with significant increases.
