Strengthening Families Washington


Printer-friendly version

Strengthening Families Washington is a program within the Department of Early Learning whose main focus is helping families become stronger together through a variety of tactics, including:

• home visiting

• community outreach and partnerships

• funding opportunities with local organizations


We believe that strong families build robust communities and create a resilient future for all children.


Within SFWA we house the Washington Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America and the Children’s Trust fund. We are, in part, funded by the federal Community Based Child Abuse Prevention program, as well as private donations and funds from the Heirloom Birth Certificate and the Keep Kids Safe license plate.


In addition to our funding opportunities that support programs and families in Washington State, we also assist with several public awareness campaigns including Speak Up When You’re Down and Have A Plan: Shaken Baby Syndrome and Safe Sleep.

We believe in partnering with parents and caregivers and encourage leadership and collaboration in all our work. If you are interested in opportunities or would like to partner with Strengthening Families Washington, please email
