It starts with you.


Your investment supports Amara’s five-year Comprehensive Campaign promise to our community’s most vulnerable children.

  • Philanthropy plays a vital role in providing support services, training and recruiting for every Amara family. Your gift directly helps more children find the love and support of a committed family.
  • The Amara Emergency Sanctuaries are 100% donor funded. Since our first Sanctuary, Grandese’s Place, opened in King County in 2014, and our second, in Pierce County, opened at the end of 2016, you’ve enabled us to care for more than ­­­­­550 kids who were suddenly removed from their homes by Child Protective Services or law enforcement.
  • Because of donors like you, Amara social workers are able to maintain lower caseloads so they can devote more attention to helping every family thrive.
