Amara - Meeting the Needs of Foster Children in Our Community

Trey Rabun graduated with his Master’s in Social Work from the University of Washington in 2011 and soon after begun his career at Amara. He also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Hampton University and a Master’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Illinois. Trey spent 4 ½ years as a case manager at Amara assessing, licensing, and supporting foster parents and their foster children. In April 2016, he took on a new role leading Amara’s efforts in outreach and recruitment of foster parents. Personally, Trey and his partner have been foster parents for almost two years and currently have a 2 ½ -year-old foster child. In his free time, Trey enjoys cooking, traveling, and playing with his Pug.

Amara is a local non-profit with offices in Seattle and Tacoma that works to ensure that every child in foster care has the love and support of a committed family-as quickly as possible, and for as long as each child needs. Trey will present about the need for more foster homes in our community and the other ways people can support foster children through the various programs at Amara.
