The Family Services and Mental Health Permanency Program offers a continuum of care for the region's families, including safe homes, mental health treatment and family support services for families with children and youth (ages 3-20) at risk of, or in need of, out-of-home care (foster care). Services help children and youth become part of a safe and permanent living situation. We offer qualifying children, youth and families high levels of support and intensive wraparound services including:

  • Mental health counseling for youth and families
  • Youth assessment services
  • Short-term foster care placement services
  • Treatment foster care
  • In-home family preservation
  • Family reunification services
  • Family support services
  • Clinical case management
  • On-site psychiatric appointments
  • 24-hour crisis consultation and outreach support

We offer ongoing, intensive training and support to our foster parents, some of whom have been with us for as long as 20 years. These services are made possible through our partnership with the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services.
