We get results.
We pride ourselves on our effectiveness. Whether it's changing policy in Washington state, expanding the Mockingbird Family Model across the country, or working overtime to secure resources for service providers on the frontlines, we are laser-focused. When members of Mockingbird's Youth Programs and families in the Mockingbird Family Model share their stories, lawmakers respond.

26,020 of respite hours provided through our Mockingbird Family Model
446 participants in Mockingbird Youth Programs
85% retention rate of foster parents in the Mockingbird Family Model
104 speaking events where youth advocates raised awareness about foster care & youth homelessness
