Treehouse aims to create opportunities to provide foster youth with the traditional experiences of childhood. It was founded when a group of concerned employees of the Department of Social and Health Services started an enrichment fund when they noticed that foster youth lacked resources for extras. Treehouse sponsors six educational and recreational programs including tutoring, educational advocacy, college and career planning, a summer camp, a clothing store, and an activities fund. These resources help foster youth participate in activities with their peers and gain footholds in their communities.
