Oregon Foster & Adoption Resources

Navigating the complexities of foster care & adoption is a full time job! There are far-reaching impacts on 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 & 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. Please reference our Adoptee & Foster Voices and Foster Parenting pages for more resources.

Can't find what you need? Please reach out to ORPARC staff at orparc@nwresource.org.
