A social services organization in Washington State kicked an American foster family out of their home so they could fill it with illegal aliens, a report says.
Kirkland, Washington-based Friends of Youth (FOY) kicked out a family from its Howard House facility in Renton, Washington, to reuse the facility to house illegals.

A private social services nonprofit booted a foster family with four kids from its home in order to house unaccompanied migrants. As a result, one foster teen was hospitalized with anxiety. Another teen ran away and, as of Monday, is still missing.
Kirkland-based Friends of Youth (FOY) owns a property in Renton called the Howard House. They decided to transition to a new source of funding, ditching local foster children for migrants from the border.
The group removed Edmundo Serena Sanchez, his wife, and their four teenage foster kids from the home. FOY is turning the residence into a group home for migrant children. FOY says on a FAQ page that they made the decision to evict once more than $400,000 in federal funding was awarded for six months of the new program’s operation.
Sanchez says that he has lived in the home for seven years. But he said that in February, he received a letter telling him that he and his family would be kicked out of the home.
“The unconscionable decision to evict the foster family, during a pandemic no less, caught the attention of State Rep. Michelle Caldier (R-Port Orchard). She was once a foster child and is a foster parent,” KTTH noted.
“I hate to say it, but my first response was that that they were getting more money, probably, for these refugees than they were getting for foster kids,” Caldier told KTTH. “They were chasing the money, and it’s disgusting. It’s absolutely disgusting.”
FOY is diving with both hands for the money that is being diverted to illegals. And they are forsaking needy American citizens as they do so.
