Tricia has been honored the last two weeks to join Washington First Lady Trudi Inslee, Mockingbird Society youth advocates, Building Changes and members of the Washington Coalition for Homeless Youth Advocacy (WACHYA) as they testified before the Washington State House and Senate in support of the Homeless Youth Act. The act would create an Office of Homeless Youth Programs within the Department of Commerce to strengthen and coordinate efforts across the state to make youth homelessness rare, brief and one time.
A transcript of Tricia’s testimony is included here, but we encourage you to view the entire House proceedings to hear from the inspiring youth and providers who shared their stories.
