Advocating for strong, healthy families

Childhood experiences matter! In fact, a child’s first 1,000 days lay the foundation for a child's future. Nurturing relationships and healthy environments foster good health. We want to ensure all children have the opportunity to thrive.

Family Support Partnership is a community effort. We work together with families, partners and local leaders to strengthen families. Research shows communities can strengthen families when they:

  • Partner with parents/caregivers to overcome challenges—Parental Resilience.
  • Create opportunities to build strong support networks—Social Connections.
  • Connect families with basic needs when they need it—Concrete Support.
  • Provide families with parenting and health education—Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development.
  • Partner with parents and caregivers to support healthy emotional and social development—Social and Emotional Development.

Based on this research, our Family Support Centers provide these services:

  • Home visiting.
  • Individual and group parenting education.
  • Connections to community resources.
  • Education and enrollment assistance for Washington Connections benefits and services.
