Hope for infants and parents facing crisis, treatment, and recovery
in Snohomish County, Washington
No-cost support in facing challenges and building strong, healthy bonds for parents and their children.
Are you facing a very real possibility of losing custody of your baby because you have a substance use disorder? We can help.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by mandated child welfare requirements and fear you may not be able to keep up and get your child back? We can help.
We welcome families with newborns or infants up to one year old (as well as those who are expecting), living at or below the federal poverty level, and who have an active substance use disorder.
Parent-ally mentors who have overcome similar challenges and are now living healthy, productive lives build relationships with parents and support them step-by-step in connecting with and using a range of wraparound support services.
Wraparound services include:
Early Childhood Education and Care
Education on children’s developmental needs and access to personalized coaching for parents
Guidance in securing basic needs, including housing, income, and planning skills
Education & Employment Pathways
Work skills, training programs, education, and employment guidance for parents
Health & Wellness
Support for physical and emotional health and well-being for the whole family
Assistance with accessing and using available resources without getting overwhelmed
Infant mental health may seem like a strange idea. Most people are more familiar with services to address existing issues with older age groups, such as couples counseling. Instead, infant mental health services take a preventative approach.
