Take a minute to learn about youth homelessness in Everett.

We first told you about the “Somebodies” campaign last summer.

This unique project by Cocoon House put a dozen life-like mannequins all over the City of Everett.

The mannequins, also referred to as ‘Somebodies’ are a representation of homeless youth. Each figure or ‘Somebody’ is wearing a sweatshirt that informs on why a young person may become homeless or a subsequent threat to their well being.

There are four “Somebodies” placed around the Everett Mall so kids and their parents shopping back to school can have conversations and maybe work together on solutions.

There’s a sign or floor graphic that provides more information on youth homelessness and ways the community can help.

You can also learn more on the campaign website… savesnocokids.org

If you’d like to donate, simply text the word “GIVE” to 72727.

    This is why no one goes to the Everett Mall, Alderwood or Bellevue Square would never do such a thing.

    Those dummies are loitering.

    I see Everett Mall is bustling with activity as usual. Nothing says dying mall like the smell of rancid popcorn and cotton candy.
