Support Groups – Times and Locations

WARM Shoulders (Individual Support)

WARM offers individual support by telephone for those who just need to talk with someone who has “walked in your adoption shoes.” We will attempt to match you with a WARM Shoulder volunteer in your geographical area. Call WARM at 206.767.9510 for more information.


Please consult this website for any notice of change the week of the meeting(s).

*WARM meetings are open to all adults (adoptees, birth parents, adoptive parents, other family members and friends). Please remember, many issues discussed at these support meetings are not appropriate for children.
