Who We Are

Board of Directors

"As a former foster parent and someone now involved with children in foster placements through the courts, I see Treehouse as a beacon of hope for the reform of our foster care system. Treehouse demonstrates the efficacy of providing a supportive intergenerational community for families and children and is also creating public/private collaborations to ensure that children in the "system" have better outcomes."
