ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION
Founded in 1963, ChildStrive is a growing non-profit agency serving children and families in Snohomish and north King Counties. We are pioneers and respected leaders in providing family centered parenting support and early intervention services to pregnant women and young children birth through 3 years old.
ChildStrive partners with families to support young children’s success in daily life and in the community.
Our vision is that all children will succeed in school and in life.
We serve our community through four programs:
Early Intervention serves families with children birth to three years of age who have a developmental delay or identified disability;
Nurse Family Partnership serves first time pregnant women who are 25 years of age or younger through pregnancy and until their child turns two years of age;
Parents as Teachers serves families who are pregnant or have a young child who are living with trauma or chronic hardships, including housing instability or poverty.
Community Engagement provides community-level services, including consultation to child care providers working with families in crisis, parenting support groups, and early learning opportunities.
ECEAP (Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program) is a high-quality preschool and family development program for underserved families in partnership with Snohomish County and the State of Washington.
At ChildStrive our workplace is a direct reflection of our work with the families we serve.
- We ask our families about their hopes and dreams and we recognize that the hope of dreams of our staff extend beyond their work life.
- We build family capacity through strength based coaching, reflection, and information sharing.
