A stunning and relevant statistic for you:
Of the approximately 2,150,000* people living in King County, 490,200 are 19 years or younger. A study funded by New York Life estimates that 1 of every 7 young people will lose a parent or sibling before the age of 20.
This means more than 70,000 young people in King County today will likely lose or have lost a parent or sibling before their 20th birthday.
That number would fill Century Link field to capacity, with thousands of children spilling out onto the field!
That is an enormous amount of kids in our community who need support and services!
Your gifts of time and resources help these kids on their grief journeys, restoring their childhoods so they can find joy, security and the possibilities that all young people deserve.
