Amara Recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s All Children – All Families Program

Amara is proud to announce that we have earned recognition by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s All Children – All Families Program. We have been recognized for innovation, inclusion and for being a welcoming organization to all LGBTQIA+ people in our work serving children and families impacted by the child welfare system, or at risk of becoming involved, and in our community. This is the fifth year in a row Amara has earned these esteemed seals, and the 10th year we have been recognized by HRC.  

“Being an affirming organization that centers LGBTQ+ equity is an integral part of who we are, and it is an honor to have that recognized by an organization as well respected as the Human Rights Campaign,” said Nicole Mazen, Amara’s Chief Program and Policy Officer. 

Earning the “You Are Welcome Here” and “Innovator in Supporting and Serving LGBTQ+ Youth & Families” seals demonstrates Amara’s enduring commitment to being an open and affirming agency, centering the needs of every child and family we serve. Amara not only supports foster and kinship caregivers in how to best care for children and youth who identify as LGBTQIA and encourages LGBTQIA+ families to consider fostering, we value and celebrate the contributions of our beloved LGBTQIA+ community.
