Amara is singularly focused on serving kids in foster care and believes every child- regardless of circumstance – has an inalienable right to the love and support that can only be found within a lifelong family. Our work includes: recruiting and training families committed to fostering and adoption; providing emergency sanctuary for children who have been removed from their homes; providing ongoing, post-adoption support to our families; and working with other private and public entities to improve the complex systems serving foster children.
