I am I child and family therapist and a researcher on youth homelessness working in the Seattle area. As a therapist, I have worked with dozens (maybe even hundreds!) of clients who were connected to YouthCare in some way. In each and every case, I am always thrilled to learn that a client is being served by YouthCare becuase I know they will receive excellent support and compassionate service. I have known clients at all levels of the agency--outreach, case management, shelter, transitional living, etc. In all instances I have been impressed by the expertise and passion demonstrated by the staff. In my mind, YouthCare is undoubtedly the greatest resource available to homeless young people in the Seattle area.
As a social worker for Children's Administration, Youthcare has been one of my top referred resources. I have been amazed by the depth of their services and the impact it has made on my clients.
