Treehouse Foundation

Treehouse Intergenerational Community Model 

Treehouse Foundation promotes intergenerational community innovations in child welfare, family services, and vital aging, to ensure that children who experience foster care find forever families and supportive communities, empowering them to lead fulfilling, productive lives.

"Treehouse Foundation brought Broadsight in to synthesize 12+ years of practice into a coherent framework that our team worked with collectively to ensure it really reflected us. I appreciated the structure Jessica provided to define our work and lift up the values that differentiate us. The finished toolkit formalizes what we do in a way that others can follow. It will be a true game changer as we engage partners to replicate our work, raise funds and fulfil our mission to change narratives about foster care, family support, and active aging in America."

Judy Cockerton, Executive Director, Treehouse Foundation

Task: Formalize years of innovation and experimentation into a coherent model of practice.

Solution: Discover, codify, and describe the key components of the Treehouse model to be adapted by replicators.

Process: Conduct comprehensive organizational review to understand elements of practice and synthesize findings in a toolkit for replication.

Outcome: Development of the Treehouse Intergenerational Community Model: A Practitioner’s Guide, an online resource serving as a baseline for workshops, presentations, website content, publications, consulting, and engagement with our community of members, replicators, partners, and investors.
