The Kitsap County foster care system is woefully overloaded. Over 400 children are currently in need of foster care accommodations, but there are only 103 homes in the care network at present. Tragically, nearly 2,000 young people in the area are already homeless.
The Betty Skinner Insurance Agency is leading a local campaign to provide assistance to these children and improve outcomes for young people in the Kitsap foster care system. “Our team believes that every child should have a home and a family, and we are implementing a rewards program to encourage other members of our community to get involved and help us make sure that no more children slip through the cracks,” said agency CEO Betty Skinner.
