PSKS Goes to (the State of) Washington

imagejpeg_0

On Friday February 29th, PSKS participants and staff joined the Mockingbird Society for their annual Youth Advocacy Day. PSKS joined over 250 other advocates from throughout the state to lobby our elected officials to help protect the state’s vulnerable youth.

The main talking points for the day were:

  1. Expanded availability of HOPE Centers
  2. Formal evaluation of the Mockingbird Family Model
  3. Under-18 Consent for HMIS

PSKS was founded on the idea that the youth themselves know the best way to get out of homelessness and Youth Advocacy Day is a crucial opportunity to show that the youth have a voice.12615478_633679430104470_737167255245171116_o
