Skookum Kids is a foster care focused charity based right here in Washington. Founded in 2014, Skookum is build around a single big idea: that if we take great care of people, the mission will take care of itself. So we work really hard to make this a delightful place to volunteer and be a foster parent.
And what is the mission? To repair foster care. People say that foster care is broken. We want to change that in 3 key ways:
* Operating an emergency shelter, so that children have a smooth transition into foster care
* Helping families successfully navigate a long and confusing foster care licensing process
* Encouraging and supporting families doing this important work of foster care
