 Strengthening Families Washington works with local communities to increase program capacity to institute and expand the Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework for all children. 


Child Abuse Prevention Month

Each April, people across the country join together during National Child Abuse Prevention Month to raise awareness and promote ways we can strengthen families in our communities. Strengthening Families Washington is the state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, the nation’s leading organization working solely to prevent the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children.


We hope you will join us on April 7th for Go Blue Day! We encourage everyone to wear blue to show you support for all children and their right to a safe, healthy and supported childhood. For more information, click here
