Women United hosted Caregiver Appreciation Day
Our esteemed guest, Leon Richardson, Director of Adult Human Service Division in King County, played a pivotal role in securing funding for the King County Veteran Seniors program and the Human Kinship Levy, which supports kinship and mentoring initiatives. Matriarch Helen Sawyer and Cynthia A. Green bring with them a wealth of experience in kinship care, support, and navigation. Their tireless efforts in Olympia to advocate for increased funding and resources for kinship caregivers are commendable. These exceptional women have paved the way for us and deserve recognition, along with other former caregivers who selflessly provide love and security to our children.
During the event, Women United presented current and former kinship caregivers with a thoughtfully curated gift bag, a $50.00 gift card, and a Certificate of Appreciation. We gathered together to enjoy light refreshments while delighting in the smooth jazz melodies performed live by Danny Welsh, the talented jazz saxophonist. Kinship is a shared responsibility, uniting us as a family to provide care and support for one another.
