WASHINGTON—Homeless and at-risk teens in Northwest Washington will have housing and supportive services thanks to $528,400 in new federal grants, Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, announced today. The grants to Cocoon House in Everett and Northwest Youth Services in Bellingham will support the housing and transitional programs designed to help runaway, homeless and at-risk teens. The grants were made this week by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

“We must do everything we can to make sure homeless, runaway and at-risk teens are safe and have help getting back on their feet,” Larsen said. “I applaud the continued efforts of both Cocoon House and Northwest Youth Services to end youth homelessness and to provide a stable foundation for youth throughout Northwest Washington.”
