***We are streamlining our referral process in order to more effectively serve TOC youth. As of 2/1/19, we will no longer be shopping for youth individually. we will be holding shopping events quarterly at various locations around king county. this will give youth the to opportunity to create their own styles and try on clothing to ensure accurate sizing. Available time slots for shopping will be listed here. the referring party will add their contact info and the youth’s name and age in lieu of the referral form.

referrals that were made before 2/1/19, will still be filled as they were previously.

We will be holding our first event in April. Please continue to check back for details.
