Join us throughout the month of November at Modo Yoga Seattle on Fridays at 7:30pm for karma yoga in support of Treehouse, giving foster kids a childhood and a future. This month your $5 cash donations will help support their mission to create “a world where every child that has experienced foster care has the opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams and launch successfully into adulthood.” Treehouse has become Washington’s leading organization addressing the academic and other essential supports of more than 7,000 youth in foster care.
Each morning, nearly 10,000 children in foster care in Washington state wake up to unfamiliar surroundings. In foster care, they are safe from physical harm and dangerous neglect, but they are far from out of the woods socially, emotionally and academically. Trauma and loss, changes in homes and schools and emotional upheaval cause them to perform worse than their peers on every academic measure. Volunteers are a critical part of how Treehouse supports youth in foster care. Whether sharing your time and talents as a skills-based volunteer, advocating for youth, hosting a drive for much need school supplies or warm weather gear, or offering seasonal support during the holidays, they have many opportunities to help support their mission to see every kid in care gets a childhood and a future. They even have opportunities for the whole family! Please reach out to Spencer Sheridan at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about getting involved.
Whether you come sweat with us on Fridays, set up a supply drive, or jump on one of their other opportunities to volunteer and make a difference, help Treehouse make the season brighter for all youth in foster care this year!
