Family Services and Mental Health

Our vision is to support the well-being of families and communities, while developing spirit, mind and body. We believe that everyone is capable of creating positive change in their lives. Our services are strengths-based, individualized, client-driven, culturally-competent and community-based.

We engage in this mission daily, hand in hand with our families, community partners, county and state funding partners by helping families, youth and children improve their own health with the capable support of their natural networks. Through Crisis Clinic referrals, we offer immediate, short term support to families in crisis using a wrap-around approach in their own homes or in the community. We are a long-standing provider of wrap-around therapeutic foster care, and offer short term placement for families, children and youth to help bridge them to safety, well-being and permanency.

We provide home and office-based mental health counseling, with specialization in helping children, youth, young adults and families involved in the child welfare system. We currently offer family preservation and family reunification services for families referred by King County Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services and the Washington State Children's Administration.
