On May 11, WACAP was privileged to accept the 2012 Evergreen Award, given by the Alliance for Nonprofits Washington at the Washington State Nonprofit Conference in Seattle, Washington.

Each year, the award goes to one organization for its work cultivating Washington state’s nonprofit sector and its dedication to creating community. With the collaborative partnerships we’ve continued to build, since 2006 we’ve been able to find homes for most of the children in Washington state foster care spotlighted on our A Family For Me program.

Reflecting on the honor of the Evergreen Award, we’ve returned to the title itself. One lesser-used definition of the word evergreen is “remaining vital.” Right now, there are nearly 2,000 kids in Washington state who continue to wait for families. In accepting this award, we remember how essential the ongoing commitment to find a family for every child is, and we remember the need of each of these children.

WACAP is particularly grateful for the ongoing participation of KING 5 Television,  Yuen Lui Portrait Studio and Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). Their support is vital to finding families for the children across Washington.

Our thanks to the Alliance for Nonprofits Washington for its recognition of WACAP and our collaborative partners as “evergreen” as we continue to build community and build families.


WACAP (World Association for Children and Parents) is one of the largest and most experienced international nonprofit adoption and child assistance agencies in the United States. Since 1976, we’ve placed over 10,000 children with loving adoptive parents and provided food, medical care and education to more than 200,000 children around the world.
