Mission, Goals and Statement of Purpose
Statement of Purpose
Foster Children are caught in a situation they did not create, but can not change. It is our purpose to assist those children in changing their situation for the better through adoption or self-sufficiency.
To assist all children, regardless of differences, to find safe permanent homes. To assist youth aging out of the foster care system to create a safe, self-sufficient life outside of foster care.
To assist children impacted by the foster care system to build a better life.
At Adoptions Northwest, we have an immediate goal of serving and representing children residing in foster care searching for their forever families, to find permanent, loving homes.
We will assist Northwest families on their journey through adoption. We will do this by spending quality time getting to know each family through strategic interviewing and home study. If a family is approved for adoptive placement we will assist in a national search of foster children waiting to be adopted.
We have a longer-range goal of creating programs that will support foster children who are aging out of the foster care system. Currently, the majority of our foster children are in care until they turn 18 at which point they are removed from the system and expected to be “adults”. However, many of these children have not had the benefit of the experiences that prepare us to be adults. As an example, basic tasks like opening a checking account, reading bus schedules, etc. A common issue is the ability to obtain a driver’s license. In order to do so you need to have a vehicle to practice driving, an adult willing to let you, money to pay for the exam and license, and a vehicle to take the test with. Another major barrier is how to find, apply, interview, and maintain
