Embrace Washington

Our goal is to bless and transform the lives of children living in foster care–one child at a time.


FosteringWA is a program of Eastern Washington University and under the auspices of the Family Resource and Training Center (FRTC) seeks to adapt a successful foster parent peer mentoring program to meet the needs of Eastern Washington’s families, as it has been doing in Idaho since 2007.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)

CASA volunteers advocate for the rights of abused and neglected children between the ages of birth and 17.  This is one way the community participates with the social and justice systems to find the best possible solutions for these children.

Safe Families for Children

Safe Families for Children (SFFC) of Eastern Washington is committing to serving families in crises by partnering with the local church, where families open their homes and lives to vulnerable children.

Spokane 127

The goal of Spokane127 is to connect families within the Church to agencies that serve the needs of broken families so that there is a family waiting for every child in need. Additionally, Spokane127 seeks to connect, encourage and equip those families called to serve. It is our passion that the Christian community serve lost and broken families in Spokane by sharing the love and hope of Christ.
