This month, KEXP’s Community Partnership Initiative, is proud to spotlight Amara, a local nonprofit that prepares and supports loving, adoptive families for children in foster care. For 90 years, Amara has been providing services to families and children, pioneering programs to meet the changing needs of our community’s children, youth and families. Because every child needs and deserves the safety, well-being and permanency that a forever family provides. Amara's mission is to create and support stable, loving homes for vulnerable children. Their vision and wish for the future is “A Home for Every Child.”

On Saturday, March 23rd, Chop Suey will host our monthly Audioasis Community Partnerships Benefit Show featuring performances by River Giant, BellaMaine, and The Comettes. Each band has generously donated their performances to benefit Amara.
