improving the Foster Care system

A child's first encounter with the foster care system is too often traumatic and confusing. We’re stepping in to change this by building a welcoming place where kids can feel safe and have access to the services they need.

THE PROBLEM

for kids entering foster care

The serious shortage of licensed homes means that for the first week or more, children are often bounced between the DSHS office, motels, shelters, and emergency care facilities. In addition, children have little chance to get their questions answered, let alone process the recent upheaval in their lives.

Our solution

to revolutionize the system

We are developing a therapeutic camp-like facility where children, ages six and older, will find an immediate safe place to stay up to 30 days while preparing for their first placement with a foster family. This initial facility located in Snohomish County will result in more successful first placements and fewer multiple placements. 

Get involved

and impact a generation

We can't do this alone. We need your help to make this vision a reality. We'll equip you to advocate for foster children and spread the word about our camp. Then join our volunteer team as we get up and running. We especially need your financial contribution in these early stages.
