Youth Leadership Summit Sabian speakingThe Mockingbird Society envisions that all young people reach adulthood healthy, supported, and with full opportunity to thrive in life. To achieve this, we have created programs that reform the child welfare system and address the issue of youth homelessness through a dual approach of: (1) policy advocacy and implementation; and (2) practice implementation. These two things work hand in hand as we address issues within the current system while proposing a new way of delivering foster care that leads to better outcomes and benefits to foster parents, foster youth, and social workers alike. Our work is driven by the young people and families that participate in our programs and who advocate for the changes they’ve identified through their lived experiences.
