Ongoing support for children and families
Amara’s Foster Care program provides stability, care, and support for children in foster care and the families who love and care for them.
Our team of Foster Care Specialists do this through:
- Licensing & training foster families: We work with families to provide the care and support the children need until they are reunited with their family, with relatives, or are adopted. We believe that preparing a varied pool of foster families is in the best interest of the diverse community of children we serve.
- Partnering with foster families throughout their foster care journey, providing expertise and support every step of the way. For example, when children are in foster care, it is important to maintain connections with their family. Amara foster families help kids stay connected to their families by building relationships with the families of children they are caring for, providing transportation to family visits, and sharing photo albums and updates on the kids. In all this, they receive ongoing, personal support from Amara’s Foster Care Team.
- Facilitating adoptions when reunification is not possible: The goal of foster care is to reunite children with their families whenever possible and safe to do so. When that is not possible, Amara provides support to families through the adoption process and post-adoption to ensure that adoptees and those who love them receive assistance and resources to promote stability and healthy fulfilling family relationships.
