How we help families

Whether a prospective parent, licensed foster parent, or experienced adoptive family—we’re here to help you. States in the Pacific Northwest fund us to connect youth in foster care with families who can provide them permanency.

Accounts for families in Washington State

Families or individuals who are licensed to adopt or have completed a home study in Washington can access even more with an account on Northwest Adoption Exchange.

  • View additional password-protected Washington youth profiles.
  • Create a profile for your family.
  • Create a family video with our help.
  • Invite youth to meet you by participating in our Reverse Teen Matching, a project giving youth the chance to choose families who they would like to learn more about.
  • Connect with caseworkers by attending Washington State Adoption Consortium, a virtual, every other month meeting to inspire family matches.

Learn about youth and their strengths

We work directly with youth, caseworkers, and state partners to put the stories of youth who need permanent families in front of families like yours. View youth profiles.

Connect with a youth’s caseworker

When you inquire about a youth, we verify your information and make the connection between you, your caseworker, and the youth’s caseworker. Learn about the adoption from foster care process.
