Cocoon House's 19th Annual Butterfly Graduation is a special opportunity to recognize and honor the accomplishments of Cocoon House teens and young adults. Come hear their stories, celebrate their success and show these very special young people how much their community admires them.
Every year, the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance organizes one of the largest Advocacy Days during the legislative session. On February 2, 2016, Cocoon House will join and be a part of this very important day of action!
Cocoon House youth will join over 250 youth and allies in Olympia on Friday, January 29, 2016. With a youth-inspired legislative agenda and the signature orange scarves. Youth advocates will meet with elected officials to make a difference for our community. The day includes amazing speeches by youth, policymakers, and fellow advocates. Youth will also join the rally and march around the capitol to help break down perceptions that stand in the way of every youth and young adult having a safe and stable home.
The Annual Point-in-Time (PIT) count provides a snapshot of homelessness in Snohomish County on a single night in January of each year. While it is not possible to count every homeless person, the methodology includes outreach efforts targeting known areas and general canvassing to capture the best picture possible. The count allows us to look at trends over the years by using consistent methodology. The PIT includes use of a survey tool which provides a means for gathering information directly from individuals and families experiencing homelessness about their needs and the causes of homelessness. The PIT results, along with other data and information, help inform the Everett/Snohomish County Continuum of Care plan for addressing needs and making progress toward goals to reduce, end, and prevent homelessness. Cocoon House’s U-Turn drop in center will be the staging area for the youth count!
