Who We Are

Board of Directors

"I'm a foster/adoptive parent, and now involved with the courts in supporting children in foster care. I see Treehouse as a beacon of hope for improving our foster care system. Treehouse demonstrates the efficacy and power of providing intergenerational community for families and children. This innovative model also creates public/private partnerships to ensure that children in 'the system' have better outcomes."
