Serving all members of the adoption circle, The Barker Adoption Foundation provides ethical, child-centered services that fully respect everyone's needs. Clients are diverse in age, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic background. Expectant parents with crisis pregnancies access emotional support, housing and food, education about their options, and connections with community resources. (There are no fees and no one is turned away.) Adoptive families receive guidance and information on raising an adopted child. Most importantly, children find permanent, loving homes, and special assistance as they grow up and seek to understand their own adoptions. A model public-private partnership, Project Wait No Longer, finds loving, permanent families for children in the foster care system, many of whom are older or have special needs. The human family comes in many forms, and The Barker Adoption Foundation honors that fact in everything it does. Your generosity helps sustain this noble mission.
