Oregon Foster & Adoption Resources

Navigating the complexities of foster care and adoption is a full time job! There are far-reaching impacts on so many aspects of children's lives and those of their original families; the caregivers caring for them (whether temporary or permanent); and the providers supporting them. We encourage you to take advantage of not only the local and national resources below, but all of our Resource pages, where you'll find many ways of understanding each child and family's one-of-a-kind situation, whether your own or one you're helping. Please reference our Adoptee & Foster Voices and Foster Parenting pages for yet more resources.
