our work

Mockingbird Family


MOCKINGBIRD FAMILYTM is an innovative foster care delivery model that creates an extended family network to support,


develop and retain quality foster families so they can meet the challenging and complex needs of children and youth experiencing foster care. The design provides a framework and opportunity for communities to come together in support of its young people. Foster families are valued and retained, youth thrive and communities strengthen their support around children and families to keep them connected.

Keep Our Kids In Kent With MOCKINGBIRD FAMILY™ is a community-led, state-supported effort in Kent, Washington where we are building momentum for our vision of a world class foster care system. We are working to saturate the Kent School District with Mockingbird Families. Our hope is that Kent and other communities like it will become a model for our state, nation, and foster care systems around the globe.
