The Mockingbird Society’s mission is to transform foster care and end youth homelessness.

Working in partnership with young people who’ve lived through the systems we’re transforming, we change policies, perceptions, and practices that stand in between any young person and a safe, supportive, stable home.

Mockingbird’s COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 has hit our communities hard. This crisis magnifies inequities faced by young people and families experiencing foster care or homelessness and amplifies the need for The Mockingbird Society’s advocacy.

During this pandemic we are elevating the voices of youth and families to:

  • Advocate in support of young people who are losing jobs, housing, or access to education;
  • Provide emergency policy guidance to the Office of Homeless Youth and the Department of Children, Youth & Families; and
  • Deliver critical trauma training to all Mockingbird Families, so they can support the needs of the foster parents and kids in their community.

Operations Update:

Our staff are working from home, and we’ve adapted our programming to meet today’s challenges. To hear directly from young people about how this moment is affecting them, and for updates on our ongoing response, sign up here.
