Our Adoption and Foster Care Programs



Our local Adoption and Foster Care Programs were established by our parent organization Northwest Resource Associates.


Northwest Adoption Exchange (NWAE)

The Northwest Adoption Exchange is a regional photo and profile gallery that spotlights waiting foster children in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. We connect families from all over the United States with workers for our waiting children. We also coordinate local media recruitment, including Saturday’s Child newspaper columns and Wednesday’s Child television spots. www.nwae.org

Washington Specialized Recruitment Project (SRP)

SRP is a specialized program of the NWAE that focuses on specific waiting foster children in Washington who need extra recruitment help. SRP combines enhanced outreach with targeted search efforts in order to recruit adoptive families for these children.

Our call center offers comprehensive information about the foster care and adoption process in Washington State. We also host and maintain a statewide recruitment database that is used by local recruitment specialists. Please contact us at 1.888.543.7414 or email sric@nwresource.org.
