Family Resource Center - Amara

Family Resource Center

Amara’s Family Resource Center provides families with immediate help such as food*, diapers, and clothing, as well as connections to other resources such as healthcare, baby necessities, transportation, and parenting supports. Families do not need to “qualify” or prove “eligibility” to get the help they need at our Resource Center.


As of April 17, 2023, we are no longer accepting new requests for concrete goods (grocery/gas cards, rental assistance, car repairs, large purchases) due to limited funds. We are processing previous requests and will respond to those as soon as we are able. We hope to re-open our concrete goods program soon. Our food pantry and diaper bank in our Tacoma office are open and available.
