Our Own Journey

In the mid 1990’s, as the number of state adoptive families surged, so did the acute need for
post placement support. Together with the Oregon Department of Human Services, a conscientious
group of citizens gathered input from families, professionals & stakeholders to innovate an answer:
a statewide post adoption resource center - one of the first nationally of its kind - focused intentionally
on adoptive family support, referral and response.

We remain true to this journey.


Our Mission

To provide ongoing support, education, information, assistance, and referral services to DHS post adoptive families and assisted guardianship families statewide.




Oregon Post Adoption Resource Center is a division of Northwest Resource Associates,

a family of 501(3)(c) nonprofit programs in Oregon, Washington and Alaska

and a proud partner of the Oregon Department of Human Services.
