YouthCare is proud to announce that we have been selected as one of three recipients of the 2011 Seattle Human Rights Award. This award is presented annually by the Seattle Human Rights Commission. We are deeply honored by this recognition, and thank the City of Seattle for choosing us.

Commission member Greg Ramirez, who once worked at YouthCare, said in his nomination, “[YouthCare continues] to go above and beyond working with one of the most vulnerable populations, homeless youth. Fighting for the basic Human Rights is connected to their mission and I believe they should be recognized for their amazing work.”

The award will be presented at Seattle's Human Rights Day Celebration on December 8th, 2011 at 6:00pm at City Hall.
