On April 30th the community is invited to recognize 35 teens and young adults who have overcome unimaginable life experiences. These youth have faced homelessness, drug addiction, abuse, and many other obstacles. We will be joined by First Lady Trudi Inslee as well as other elected officials, service providers, partners and community members. This will not be your typical graduation. We want the whole community to come together and show these honorees how much their community supports them on their journey to become positive members of our communities. There will be noisemakers to help our guests cheer for these teens and young adults as they receive medals for staying clean and sober, graduating, getting their GED, maintaining housing, and other positive life accomplishments.

“The challenges these teens and young adults have had to overcome in their short lives are difficult for most of us to imagine,” said Cocoon House CEO, Cassie Franklin. “These individuals have a bright future ahead and it is thanks to their hard work and determination that has led them to be successful.”

We invite the whole community to help us celebrate, hear the stories, and recognize these successes. Admission is $15 with a suggested donation of $150. Proceeds from the luncheon directly benefit Cocoon House’s work with at-risk and homeless youth throughout Snohomish County. We hope our community is able to attend and show these young people how much our community supports them.
