Supporting child and family well-being starts with connection. When kids enter foster care, we keep them connected to their families through visitation and help establish connections between parents and foster families to build a strong community that works together to best support child(ren) while in foster care.
We aren’t afraid to be the first – the first to try new ways of supporting families, to find innovative solutions to long-standing challenges within child welfare by listening to families directly impacted by foster care. That’s why we partnered with Pierce County Juvenile Court to pilot the Pierce County Early Childhood Court program which supports families who have infants and toddlers in foster care by meeting more frequently to promote greater support for families and children.
And while kids are in foster care, we promise to provide safe and affirming homes for as long as they need by providing quality support and training to foster and kinship caregivers. Kids do best when they have a team of people loving them and meeting their needs – together.
If you decide to foster with Amara, we may occasionally text you to best coordinate our services. By agreeing to receive services from Amara, you agree to receive individualized communications from us via text. Clients can always opt out of receiving texts by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re Temporarily Pausing New Foster Caregiver Applications
Thank you for your interest in making a difference in the lives of kids in foster care by fostering with Amara. We know that choosing to become a foster caregiver, and deciding what organization to work with, are important decisions, and we are honored to be on your list.
In order to adjust to changes within the child welfare landscape we are putting a pause on accepting new applications. We will be reevaluating our ability to welcome new families every six months. If you would like us to contact you when we begin accepting applications again, please use this link to be added to our waitlist. We apologize that we cannot work with your family immediately, and look forward to connecting with you in the future.
If you’re interested in getting your foster caregiver license right away, we suggest you review information on licensing directly through the Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) or licensing through another Child Placing Agency.
