Nataya Foss is the chair of the Snohomish County Youth Action Committee, which provides oversight for the county’s federally funded Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program. She experienced homelessness when she was 17.

For the last year, the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange has been writing about youth experiencing homelessness, particularly in the Seattle area. This collection in Bokeh Focus, our platform for photography focused on youth, is some of our favorite photos from that coverage. 

Take a look at what Paul Joseph Brown, Karen Ducey, Dorothy Edwards and Matt M. McKnight found.

  1. I do not feel that this is “in reply” but may be of interest to you.

    I received an invitation from a person named Kim McGill to meet her in Seattle on the 19 th or 20th of October. The e-maul was addressed to “Dad”. I do not have a daughter named Kim McGill. I do not have a daughter that has s have two felons and many misdemeanor before she entered high school.

    I do have a daughter named Kim McGillicuddy. I think she is the founder of Youth Justice Coalition.
    Kim McGillicuddy (my daughter) was raised in the Pasadena schools district and lived in Sierra Madre
    She was educated in the best private schools in Pasadena until she entered Pasadena His School.
    At Pasadena High School she was an “honor student” and was the featured speaker at her graduation.
    Kim McGillicuddy was recruited to go to Harvard and was qualified fo a scholarship to Stanford under a program established by my employer. She chose to attend UCLA and graduated from there.

    This girl going by the name Kim McGill is not creditable and should not be allowed to address you organization
