About ORPARC

We mobilize caregivers, connecting them to community supports that promote hope & healing for their children.

“ORPARC has been a ray of sunshine in what has, at times, been a very difficult road...it is a huge relief to just have someone want to help.” ~Adoptive Parent


We Serve You


Since our founding in 1999, ORPARC’s open dialogue with Oregon DHS, community partners, and parents has deepened our responsiveness to the courageous voices of state adoptive, foster and kinship families and their brave children.

ORPARC is honored to serve:

  • Oregon DHS Adoptive & Assisted Guardianship families
  • Oregon families who adopt through any state's child welfare system
  • Families who move to Oregon after adopting through any child welfare system
  • Oregon DHS workers
  • Community partners working directly with Oregon’s state families & children
  • Oregon Foster & Relative Families through our library, resources and trainings



Our Approach


Assisting families on their lifelong journey...

Permanency is our priority. Every child who has spent time in the foster care system has an urgent and heightened need for a family’s unwavering commitment.

Through information & referral; training & education; therapeutic listening; systems navigation; advocacy; and personalized parenting consultation, we explore a family’s need and desire for short or long term assistance.
