We envision–and strive to create–a world where every child that has experienced foster care has the opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams and launch successfully into adulthood. Our goal is that by 2022, youth in foster care across Washington state will graduate from high school at the same rate as their peers, with support and a plan to launch successfully into adulthood.
Kids, youth, and young adults who have experienced foster care need us more than ever. Here is how we are responding to the challenge:
Adapting our services to provide rent assistance for youth and young adults living independently who have lost their jobs
Providing laptops and cell phones so youth can virtually connect with Education Specialists and tutors while schools are closed
Working with youth who have babies to provide essentials such as diapers, formula and wipes
Safely continuing to support our youth and caregivers with easy-to-find resources and timely updates
Ensuring youth can access clothes, books and essentials safely
