We are entertaining establishing a county wide program that would organize, oversee and administer a program where youths in Lewis County ages 13-23 are placed with quality families to assist in saving them from the trama that happens when their current living situation is sustainable. These youths are currently couch surfing, staying with grand parents, staying with teachers, staying with neighbors or even homeless all together. These youths are otherwise trying to get good grades and work their way out of their situation. Other communities have working examples we can use as models. Even foreign exchange student programs have some similarities. An informational meeting will be held May 21, 2019 at St John’s Lutheran Church, 2190 Jackson Hwy, Chehalis, WA at 7pm.
