Care for Families & Children

Every child deserves the opportunity to grow and learn.

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to grow and learn through a loving childhood, that family is the most important key to success and that it takes a community to raise a child. But children and adolescents are today among the most vulnerable people living in the Washington region. Our programs recognize some of the challenges they face and provide support and resources to help.
