Making the Holidays Brighter

The Treehouse Holiday Magic program helps to make the holidays brighter for children and youth in foster care by raising resources from the community to provide a holiday gift to eligible youth across Washington state.

Holiday Magic FAQ

Why is Registration Closing October 31?

Due to extended shipping times related to Covid-19, we are having to move up registration times to ensure that gifts arrive before the holidays.

How do you get a referral for Holiday Magic?

Treehouse receives a list from DCYF with all children and youth in foster care who are eligible for Holiday Magic. We then send emails and letters out to all the eligible kids and their caregivers.
