TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Each year, the Arizona Department of Child Safety removes more children from their homes.
Right now, the state reports 19,000 children across Arizona no longer living with their parents because officials have determined it is no longer safe for them to stay there. Reasons vary from neglect to physical abuse to sexual abuse.
DCS officials tell Tucson News Now that there are not enough foster homes for the more than 3,000 children in Pima County who need a safe place to live, while their parents work out their issues.
