Treehouse arranged for 5 youth who have experienced foster care to meet Pearl Jam's Mike McCready. Franky Price, Rickardo Mendiola, Sergio, Joseph and Logan had never played together. With Mike, they created “Try So Hard.”
Only 49 percent of youth in foster care graduate from high school. Without a diploma, they face high rates of poverty, homelessness, incarceration, early parenting and substance abuse. Through Treehouse’s Graduation Success program (http://bit.ly/graduation-success), youth are invested in goals and plans for the future that they develop themselves. Treehouse has raised the extended graduation rate from 49 to 89 percent for their youth. That rate includes on-time and fifth-year graduations.
Founded in 1988 by social workers, Treehouse addresses the academic and other essential support needs of kids in foster care. Treehouse helps more than 7,500 youth each year through programs that focus on their academic success, fulfill key material needs and provide important childhood experiences every child deserves.
