The Children's Service's Committee was formed in 2010 to study services for at-risk children in Snohomish County. During work on that study, we discovered that sex trafficking of minors did not just involve girls from foreign countries. Many of the victims were girls and boys right here in Snohomish County. We turned our attention and action to sex trafficking of minors in our county. That continues to be our primary focus to this day.
In 2013 we added the issue of homeless teens and began work at Cocoon House, serving dinner once a month to clients at their U-Turn Drop In Center. We are also delivering holiday gifts suitable for homeless teens, and participating in fund-raising luncheons for Cocoon House and the Dawson Place Child Center.
Our three-member committee has grown to 10 members. The Board and members of LWVSC have been actively supportive of the Committee’s work.
Lead: Barbara Bush
Meetings: Monthly on the second Friday, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
For location of meeting, call Barbara Bush.
In December, 2016, the Children’s Services Committee wrapped and delivered nearly $1,000 worth of holiday gifts to the U-Turn Drop-in Center, thanks to the generous contributions of our members and friends.
