Cocoon House celebrates 25 years | Letter

Aug 31, 2016

Editor, The Beacon:

This year marks 25 years of service to at-risk and homeless youth in Snohomish County for Cocoon House.

In that time, we have served over 30,000 teens, young adults and families in our community and have helped them get connected to family reconciliation services, drug and alcohol support, education, employment, housing and a continuum of critical services.

Twenty-five years ago, Cocoon House opened its doors as an emergency shelter in Everett with the generous support of the North Everett Lions Club.

Today, Cocoon House operates five facilities throughout Snohomish County dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness. These facilities include our drop-in day center, two emergency housing programs, a long-term transitional living program and a teen maternity group home.

As Cocoon House continues to grow, we want to make sure our community stays informed. Big things are coming, successes are happening, and things are changing. I am honored to lead Cocoon House during this time of positive growth and hope you join me on this journey.
