Coordinate a donation drive or fundraiser to support the individual needs of living essentials and counseling services for our children, youth and families...get started as an individual or as a team. If you and your friends, co-workers, or family want to do it together it is a great way to bond!

Donation drives for shop cards (grocery gift cards), diapers, formula, baby-proofing supplies, first aid kits and batteries for smoke detectors are needed.

These items help licensed foster families prepare their homes to receive kids and youth into their care, with all of the proper safety measures in place. It also helps families receiving in-home family preservation services to receive and shop for the bare essentials for their families while they navigate some of the most challenging changes and seasons of their lives.

Fundraise in support of children, youth and families receiving services and physical resources in any of our programs: Therapaeutic Foster Network, Family Preservation Services, Independent Living Services, and El Sol Nace para Todos ("The Sun Rises for All"). Visit our website ( youthnetnw.net) to create your own fundraising page for the Holiday Season, and share with your community to get them excited and involved to give back for Giving Season (especially Giving Tuesday, November 28th, 2023)

  • $10 = Pick-Me-Up Pack For a child, young person or caregiver to receive a small gift bag of treats and "pick-me-ups", therapeutic or otherwise, to brighten a spot in their day-- becuase we all need that now and again.
  • $25 = "Belong"-ings Bag

    For a child entering foster care to collect and transport their valuables safely and with dignity

  • $50 = Grocery essentials
