Northwest Resource Associates is a multifaceted nonprofit agency that provides an array of services for the human services community. With offices in three states, we have been successfully designing, developing, implementing, managing, and evaluating programs since 1980. Our services are diversified, individualized, responsive, and inclusive.

Our Programs

Adoption and Foster Care

Our adoption and foster care services range from orientation, training, and support of current and prospective adoptive and foster parents to maintaining state, regional, and national photolisting websites, which feature children waiting for permanent homes.

Program Evaluation

We have solid and successful track records in the design and execution of program evaluations in a range of human services and intervention environments.


We offer educational and skill-building opportunities for a wide range of potential recipients: child welfare and social service professionals, interested members of the public, pre- and post-licensed foster and adoptive parents, and mental health providers, among others.
