The challenges facing foster youth are real. Many can face mental and physical challenges, lack stability at home and in school, struggle to keep pace academically with their peers, and continue to face challenges in adulthood.
Seattle Rep has partnered with local organizations that provide support for families in the foster care system and at-risk youth. Below is a list of some of these organizations. We hope this list serves as a valuable resource for you and anyone you may know who is looking for support or opportunities to get involved.
Casey Family Programs is the nation’s largest operating foundation focused on safely reducing the need for foster care and building Communities of Hope for children and families across America. Our mission is to provide and improve – and ultimately prevent the need for – foster care.
