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?

Are you about to become a parent and realize you might have an addiction and don’t know where to turn for 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?

The Homeward House CORE Collaborative is here to help you!

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

Economic Assets

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

Social Capital

Assistance with accessing and using available resources without getting overwhelmed

The work of Homeward House CORE Collaborative is on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish Peoples, in particular, the Tulalip, Snohomish, Stillaguamish, and Sauk-Suiattle tribes. We honor the original caretakers of the land they continue to cherish and protect.

We also acknowledge the history of slavery upon which our country was built and the indefensible inequities that exist for Black people and other people of color today. While the movement for justice and liberation is ever present, this legacy persists, and we are committed to working toward racial justice, equity, and dismantling the barriers and inequities built into the systems of which we are part.
