Caregiver, Youth and Educator Resources

To support the academic and life success of youth in foster care, Treehouse has compiled a listing of information and resources for youth in foster care and the caregivers and educators who support them.

Education Resource Wednesdays

Dive into education topics with local experts as they provide tools, resources and support to help foster parents and kinship caregivers guide their youth to academic success.

Education Resource Wednesdays is a free drop-in group that meets on the third Wednesday every other month from 6:30-8:00 pm. These virtual meetings will take place on Zoom. We’ll meet in the same Zoom room every month. The Zoom meeting ID is 979 4221 7041 or you can click here to join. There is no need to register, just join us for whatever meeting fits your schedule.

In partnership with Treehouse, the Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), these sessions will provide you with the opportunity to learn directly from educational experts and connect with foster parents and kinship caregivers by sharing your experiences.
