Introducing Skookum Mentors

Skookum Mentors is a new pilot program where foster children are paired with a safe adult for one-on-one mentoring.  Mentors are trained and background checked case aides who are equipped to provide social, academic and recreational support for your child and your family.

Mentorship is designed to work best for your family, and can take place when and where you desire.  If you're interested in having your child mentored, please download the mentor request form below.  Mentorship is completely free to foster parents, and does not require a social worker referral.
