Executive Director
Nila is the founder and director of RAI which has been in operation since 1993. As a minister to children and families, she has traveled to Russia and Ukraine over twenty times bridging the gap between RAI and those receiving RAI's assistance. Her vision is to permanently impact the lives of orphan or homeless children throughout the world. This is accomplished through provisions of adoption services and humanitarian aid.

Licensed Social Worker
Shawn is our social worker. She prepares families for adoption and assists them throughout the adoption process. Shawn's responsibilities include conducting orientations, home studies, post-placement services and referring children to loving, stable and nurturing families. Shawn is very excited to be a part of RAI and wants to contribute to our mission as she believes that Reaching Arms International is not just an adoption agency, but a true humanitarian Christian outreach.

Licensed Social Worker
Lila is an independent social worker who contracts with RAI preparing adoption home studies and supervising the work of RAI's social workers. Lila has over 25 years of experience working with foster and adoptive families. Lila is committed to providing excellent quality work. She believes that one of RAI's future strengths will be the development of specialty programs for older children.

Adoption Assistant
Kari handles all paperwork submitted by the client for routing to Russia or Ukraine. She is the person to direct questions or concerns about official documents involved in the adoption process. She has witnessed the impact RAI has had on children and families and would like to see this ministry continue to touch lives in need of this type of assistance.

Administrative Assistant
Cynthia (Cyndi) assists the executive director with special projects related to the larger scope of Reaching Arms. She is the person who is aware of all departments of RAI and is an excellent resource to direct general questions. She would like to see Reaching Arms extend its services to more states in the U.S. and more nations of the world. It is important to her to maintain a personal approach to adoption with each client while seeking growth for the ministry.
