Register Families with these Helpful Tips
WARE gives Washington foster children and in-state families a greater chance of connecting. The following tips will help guide you through the family registration process.
Which families should I register?
Only families with a current approved Washington homestudy can be registered on WARE.
What will a family’s profile page look like?
A family profile will feature a brief narrative, your caseworker information and a family photo.
Who writes the family profile?
The family does, with your input.
What type of photo should a family submit?
We appreciate and encourage quality, professional photos. Email us at least one or two clear photos of the family.
How do we protect a family's privacy?
WARE is password- protected! Family profile pages are only available for viewing by approved adoption workers in Washington - not by other families.
Do family profiles change?
We like to update family profiles every 6 months. Contact us right away if the family’s situation, preferences or status changes so we can edit or remove their profile.
Has the family found a match?
Congratulations – let us know! Please notify us when a family is matched so we can help you celebrate and remove the family’s listing.
We look forward to working with you!
