our Ten REgions

provide you with connection in your area of the country




The regional chapter structure of FRUA provides an in-person way to connect with other families formed through adoption in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.  This regional format fosters community by providing social, heritage, and educational opportunities for families to come together.  Children in particular benefit from meeting other kids “like me - adopted!”


FRUA has ten regions, covering all fifty states and some Canadian provinces, such that each FRUA member family is part of a regional chapter community. Each regional chapter requires a regional board, treasurer and local bank account to accept member dues shares from the National Board for use within the region.  In some regions, smaller "Parent Organized Districts" (PODs) coordinate as metro-focused activity groups. This brings home FRUA's mission, to provide hope, help and community for adoptive familes, in a very personal, localized way.

To connect with your region, find a FRUA regional chapter contact, locate a FRUA POD nearest you, or inquire about setting up a FRUA POD in your specific area, scroll down to your region and click on the contact information.
