WASHINGTON, D.C. —Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, today announced a $200,000 federal grant for Cocoon House in Everett, which provides services for teens experiencing homelessness. Larsen visited the organization earlier this month to learn more about its operations and funding needs.

“Cocoon House plays a critical role in Snohomish County by offering teens in need a safe place to seek housing and other resources. I am pleased Cocoon House is receiving this federal investment so the organization can continue helping young people secure homes and a strong future,” Larsen said.

“The federal grant will ensure Cocoon House continues to provide critical housing services to homeless teens in Snohomish County. We are lucky to have such great support from our community, including Congressman Larsen’s office,” said Cassie Franklin, CEO for Cocoon House. 

Larsen supported Cocoon House’s application for the grant, which is nationally competitive and comes from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as previous federal funding the organization has received.
