"A lot of young adults are already working on this. but to get any further, we need help from all of the community to continue making progress and going forward.”
– Dakota Neuman, Mockingbird Chapter Leader
Each year, 9,000+ young people enter foster care in WA state alone. And for the vast majority of these young people, entering the system leads to overwhelmingly dismal outcomes – outcomes we wouldn’t wish for any child.
Our systems must do better. For twenty years, Mockingbird's young leaders have been dedicated to transforming foster care and ending youth homelessness - and we hope you'll join them. We can all be part of this work. By supporting Mockingbird’s young people, you’re supporting a stronger community, because these issues impact all of us.
