“My dream for this housing for youth is really that we provide a place for people to go that either prevents them from being houseless or prevents them from having to leave the area,” said Wiyot Tribal Administrator Michelle Vassel, who is leading the housing development.

As homelessness rises in Humbold County, California, the Wiyot tribe are ensuring their youth have "a place to call home."

Celebrating Indigenous People's Day with a Message of Honor and Reverence for First Peoples.
As we celebrate Indigenous People's Day, it is important to recognize and honor the first peoples of the land we call home. Native communities have been instrumental in shaping the culture and history of this country, and their contributions deserve to be acknowledged and celebrated.
However, it is also important to acknowledge the damage and pain caused by centuries of colonization and forced assimilation. We must work towards healing and reconciliation with Indigenous communities, and actively support their efforts to preserve their cultures and traditions.
Let us use this day to reflect on our past and present, and make a commitment to creating a better future for all. As we honor and reverence the first peoples of this land, let us also learn from them and work together towards a more just and equitable society.

Older youth permanency project
The vast majority of in the care system are older than nine years of age. Older youth in foster care are less likely to be adopted or have permanent family relationships, and many age out of the foster care system without a permanent family. When youth age out of foster care without a family, they face serious difficulties transitioning to life on their own.

Permanency is a process and a result that is youth driven and includes a permanent, supportive, adult who takes on a parental role in a youth’s life.

The goal of Family Builders’ permanency services is to create permanency for children and youth in foster care and in the juvenile justice system. This includes reunification, adoption, tribal customary adoption, guardianship, permanent placement with a relative and relational permanency.

Permanency provides youth with:

A safe, stable and secure parenting relationship

Love

Unconditional commitment

Lifelong Support

A place to be

Permanency is respectful of culture and affirming of sexual orientation and gender identity.
