About Skookum Kids
Skookum House
A volunteer-staffed facility to care for children entering or transitioning into foster care. With the children safe in Skookum’s care during their first week of foster care, it buys critical time for caseworkers to find the right long-term placement. The hope is that no child from our community would ever be placed in haste. Visit their website here for more information.
