Barker Foundation




The Barker Adoption Foundation is a nonprofit adoption agency licensed in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., is built on the fundamental belief that all children deserve safe, loving, and permanent families.  Our agency was established in 1945 by Ruth and Richard Barker.  Since then Barker has evolved from a traditional domestic infant-placing adoption agency into a highly regarded, comprehensive adoption center offering the following adoption-related programs and services such as, International programs, Domestic Infant and Project Wait No Longer (PWNL), our older child foster care program.  Additionally, our Post-Adoption Department provides counseling and therapeutic services to our local adoption community.
