AdoptUSKids is a national project, funded by the US Children’s Bureau, working to ensure that children and teens in foster care get safe, loving, permanent families.

Since 2003, Northwest Resource Associates has developed and maintained the national AdoptUSKids websites and photolisting. We are also responsible for project communications, additional software development, content marketing, and brand stewardship. The AdoptUSKids digital media team, based in our Seattle office, carries out this work in collaboration with teams from six partnering organizations and the Ad Council.
