The Mockingbird Society

Seattle, WA, US mdi-circle-small


The Mockingbird Society was born out of what might seem like a common-sense idea: if we want to know what young people and families impacted by foster care or homelessness need, we should ask them. Twenty years ago, no one was asking – today, youth voice is leading the way in building a better Washington for young people and families. Our advocacy has ignited fifty-six policy reforms impacting more than 100,000 young people - from providing access to driver's education, to higher education funding, to preventing youth exiting foster care into homelessness at 18. We are also proud stewards of MOCKINGBIRD FAMILY™, a model of foster care delivery that uses an extended-family model – bringing the village back to caring for foster children here in the U.S. and in seven countries around the world.
