Eternal, Everlasting, Beloved: Amara

Amara is a nonprofit organization devoted to creating a better path for kids in foster care.

We believe that every child, regardless of circumstance, has an inalienable right to the love and support that can only be found within a family.

Creating a different path for kids.

We believe it is time that each of us—all of us—make these kids a priority. That the entire community takes responsibility for their well-being. That, together, we intervene—in the right places, in the right ways, with the right partnerships and alliances—to ensure every kid has a family that will love and care for them, as quickly as possible, and for as long as each kid needs. To give kids a chance at forging a different path and creating a more hopeful future. For themselves, and the families they will build one day.

See how we work to create a new path for kids in foster care.

Foster Care and Adoption

Amara guides, prepares, and supports foster families to ensure that every kid in foster care can be placed in a stable, long-term, loving home. We believe that a devoted family gives kids in foster care the best hope, and we ask our families to commit to kids for as long as they need care—a few days, weeks, months, or forever.

Emergency Sanctuary

Our Emergency Sanctuary program ensures that kids who have just been removed from their homes have a safe, child-centered place to land while state social workers determine the best long-term placement for each child. Learn more about our Emergency Sanctuary program

Judicial Reform

Amara is leading the way in pursuing child-centered court reform. We believe that the needs of the child should be the most important factor driving judicial processes and decisions. Learn more about judicial reform
