KUOW Radio did an interesting report on Foster Kids being pushed out of Burien’s Navos that’s worth a listen.

South King County principal Melissa Pointer is worried about her student.

“I tried so many times not to cry,” she said, her voice breaking. “Because when I think about the fact that there’s literally 15 days for him and he doesn’t know where he’s going to go, that just breaks my heart.”

Pointer’s student lives at a group home for foster children, known to many simply as “Ruth Dykeman.”

Mental health care provider, Navos, was providing Behavior Rehabilitation Services (BRS), or round-the-clock care for foster kids with severe behavior problems and emotional needs, at the Ruth Dykeman Children’s Center in Burien.
