I need a place ... a place to put my number.

Looking for a cheap (or free) alternative to Google Voice that will let me port in a 928-225-xxxx number and forward it to another number.

Family member is job hunting, has already sent out resumes with current phone number, but wants to cancel service on that line, and come onto my plan with a local number. (So porting the number to my plan is not a viable option.) Porting the number to Google Voice was my first, and obvious solution, but alas, GV doesn't port numbers from that area code/prefix.
Any current suggestions for a reputable GV-like service that will allow us to port the number and forward it without paying a small fortune? (Porting to a prepaid cell is another option, but kind of a pain.) I've seen some older threads on this topic, but a lot of them seem out of date and not exactly what we're looking for.
