Finding more African American families for children in care

We couldn’t be prouder or more honored to have Trey Rabun as part of the Amara family. We are so grateful for Trey’s tireless efforts to make things better for children and families of color in foster care – both at Amara and through his work in the AdoptUSKids Minority Professional Leadership Development (MPLD) program.

After graduating, Trey was interviewed by the program to shed some light on his important research into finding more African American families for children in foster care:

“With my MPLD research project—and a good portion of my career so far—I’ve focused on recruiting and supporting families of color. But that doesn’t mean that these families and are the only ones who benefit. I truly believe that when you break down barriers for families who are more in the margins—people of color, low-income families, nontraditional families—you end up helping everyone.”
