SMCU & Amara: A Home for Every Child

Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union’s Feel Good Checking™ is proud to feature Amara as one of our non-profit community partners. For 90 years, Amara has been finding stable, loving homes for vulnerable children in our community.

Amara is finding nurturing, adoptive families for children in foster care who are traditionally considered “harder to place,” such as older children and sibling groups. If these children are not adopted, they will “age out” of the foster care system altogether—without the stability, safety and permanency of a forever family.

With support from community partners like SMCU, Amara is making progress towards their vision of A Home for Every Child. This year, Amara has found homes for 42 percent more school-aged children and 50 percent more siblings, compared to last year.

Recently, one adoptive mom spoke about the significant work Amara does. She said: “Every child longs for the comfort of being loved every day, of knowing that they matter. Children can overcome so much when they are secure and stable and loved. There are a lot of children who still need loving homes, to wake up and know they matter every day.”

When you open a Feel Good Checking™ account, SMCU will donate $20 to Amara or another of our non-profit community partners. By choosing Amara, you are directly impacting the life of a child in your own community, and making a lasting difference in their future by bringing them one step closer to finding their forever family.
