There are nearly 9,000 kids in foster care in Washington State and there are not enough homes to take them in.
- We need foster homes that keep siblings together. Nearly a quarter of brothers and sisters in foster care are separated.
- We need foster families of color. In Washington state as of 2016, 16% of children in foster care were Black/Multi-Racial Black. But only 6.5% of foster parents identify as Black.
- We need foster homes that reflect the diverse community of children we serve. Amara families come from a diverse range of ethnicities, belief systems, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and economic circumstances.
- We need families who are committed to children. We need you.
You can make it better.
