Mockingbird Society

The Mockingbird Society is an advocacy organization that works with young people and families to improve foster care and end youth homelessness.

Our youth programs train young people who have been homeless or in foster care to be their own best advocates. By doing so, they change policies and perceptions that stand in the way of every child having a safe, stable home, and a healthy family.

Our family programs advocate for innovation in foster care delivery. Together, our solutions focus on improving the social service systems that ultimately serve thousands of children, youth and families each year in Washington and beyond.

Our name is as unique as we are. The great American masterpiece To Kill a Mockingbird provides our inspiration, our moral muscle.
