Giving Foster Kids a Childhood and a Future in 2011

Once kids enter foster care, Treehouse provides integrated, wrap-around supports to help them succeed in school and ensure they experience as normal a childhood as possible. In 2011 we set a powerful vision: Within the next five years, students in foster care will graduate high school at the same rate as their peers, and be successfully launched into adulthood. With your support, Treehouse gives foster kids a childhood AND a future.

Helping Foster Kids Succeed in School and in Life

For Andrea, making it through her junior year of high school hasn't been easy. She is a bright and capable student, but disruptions in her home placements required that she overcome additional obstacles to maintain her grades. Fortunately, with the advocacy and support of Tammy, her Treehouse Education Engagement Coordinator, Andrea is on her way to a bright and promising future. When Tammy learned that Andrea was interested in veterinary medicine, they started researching schools, developing a long-term education plan, and exploring financial aid options. With Tammy's support, Andrea is taking all of the right steps to be one of the 2% of foster youth nation-wide to earn a college degree.

Helping Foster Kids Feel Great and Fit In

To Treehouse youth and caregivers, the Treehouse Wearhouse is more than a free retail store where they can shop for clothing, shoes, toys, books, and supplies. When Ben arrived in the U.S. after escaping rebels in the Congo, the clothing he found in the Wearhouse helped him assimilate in a foreign and unfamiliar place. After graduating from high school and starting a business course at a local community college, Tonya shopped in the Wearhouse for her first professional wardrobe. For Joyce, a foster mom to three young children, the Wearhouse was a safe haven in a time of crisis. When three siblings arrived at her house for an emergency placement, Joyce was able to make an after-hours appointment at the Wearhouse so the kids had pajamas to sleep in and clothes and supplies for school the next day.

Providing the Childhood Experiences Every Kid Deserves

When Jenna was sixteen, her mother dropped her off in Seattle and drove away — forever. After she entered foster care, Jenna was introduced to the Treehouse Little Wishes program, which covered the cost for her to take aerial silk lessons. The acrobatic activity helped Jenna reconnect with her identity and with those around her. The lessons helped her regain her confidence and feel comfortable making new friends. Already a focused young adult, she became even more determined to do well and re-engage in school. It wasn't long before her GPA had improved from a 1.4 to a 3.72.

Our Vision

As we look back on 2011, we want to express our deepest gratitude for your generous support, active involvement and meaningful partnership. We are inspired by your vote of confidence and your commitment to all that we can make possible in the lives of our most vulnerable children and youth. With your help, Treehouse was able to serve more than 5,000 foster kids in our community with programs that help them succeed in school, meet key material needs, and experience important childhood activities that every child deserves.

Treehouse is proud of its many 2011 achievements. Foremost among them is that we were able to sustain our statewide Educational Advocacy program that serves over 1,500 foster youth each year by continuing an innovative public/private funding partnership with the State of Washington, saving the program from complete elimination. Funding for the Educational Advocacy program was one of several provisions of SHB 2254, the "Educational Success for Youth and Alumni of Foster Care Act," which was written to address policy gaps that interfere with foster youth graduating high school and pursuing post-secondary education. Now signed into law, this legislation will help remove bureaucratic barriers, improve systems synchronization, and coordinate high-quality wrap-around services to promote educational success for foster youth.

2011 was also a year of organizational learning. Early last year, Treehouse committed to a comprehensive, organization-wide Discovery Process. The goal of Discovery was to explore how we could meet an ambitious goal: to ensure that students in foster care in King County graduate at the same rate as their peers within the next five years. The Discovery process included thousands of hours of evidence-based research on promising practices, a thorough analysis of our infrastructure and systems, and more than 20 panel discussions with leading child welfare and education experts from around the country. Thanks to the commitment of our partners, consultants, internal leadership and staff, we were able to immediately apply some of our learning to make positive, tangible steps toward our goal in 2011. Some highlights include:

  • Developing a refined and more integrated program service delivery model
  • Developing and implementing improved data collection and evaluation systems
  • Investing in new technology and software to improve internal and external communications and organizational efficiency
  • Identifying colleague organizations with whom we can establish formalized partnerships to achieve a stronger collective impact for our youth
  • Developing and executing several experimental projects to help guide and refine our five-year Strategic Plan

We are committed to a goal with inherent risks. If solutions to youth in foster care graduating at the same rate as their peers were known or easy, they would already be in implementation. We believe we are uniquely positioned to maximize the benefits and minimize the challenges of child welfare and school districts to help youth thrive. Looking forward, we know that we will need to serve three times the number of youth than current resources allow, and we will need to serve them longer and more deeply for greater impact. Ensuring that students in foster care in King County graduate at the same rate as their peers is going to take more — more funding, more volunteers, more innovation, and more collaboration. We look forward to the road ahead and know that together, we will continue to build a road to hope and possibility for our kids.

In the meantime, it is with gratitude and enthusiasm that we share with you all that you helped us to accomplish in 2011. Thank you for all that you do to help give foster kids a childhood AND a future.

With gratitude,

  • 452 youth had the experience of a lifetime at summer camp

Kids know best what other kids might need or want, so we love working with our youngest Treehouse volunteers. These motivated young people are making a huge difference for foster kids!

Top Kids Helping Kids in 2011:

In 2011, donation drive hosts raised an astounding $155,191, in addition to thousands of donated in-kind items (like jackets, clothing, shoes, books, and toys) through the combined efforts of 402 donation drives.

Our Volunteers

Treehouse volunteers play a critical role in our ability to help give foster kids a childhood and a future. They help with a range of important support functions, including greeting kids and caregivers at the front desk, tutoring foster youth one-on-one, sorting donations and stocking the Wearhouse, and supporting fundraising events. Treehouse is incredibly fortunate to be surrounded by a caring and generous community, willing to show up and work hard for foster kids.

In 2011, 2,052 people volunteered their time with Treehouse for a total of 20,537 hours. That's the equivalent of the work of more than 10 full time employees! The value of the time donated by Treehouse volunteers totals $165,323. Without the commitment and support of our volunteers, we literally could not do the work that we do.

While we appreciate every hour of service provided by our volunteers, we would like to extend a special thanks to those who committed 50 or more hours of their time to Treehouse in 2011:
