Parent Trust is a state funded service that is free for families.
From their website:
“Parent Trust has created a statewide network of support, education and leadership programs for Washington’s families’ unique needs.
“Our programs are designed to help parents and caregivers from when they’re preparing for their first newborn to when they’re dealing with the ongoing challenges of raising a family. We have learning and support programs for children and teens, too. We believe that families deserve support from conception to college.”
“Skillsource teaches workplace basics in cooperation with school districts, community colleges, and employers.”
