Early Childhood & Parent Support

The Outreach Early Childhood and Parent Support Program meets the needs of Island County parents and caregivers and their birth to 5-year-olds as they work to create healthy environments for optimal social and emotional growth and development.

Services Provided

  • In-home visitation for families with birth to 5-year-old children, focused on promoting attachment and early nurturing relationships.
  • Prenatal and postnatal visitation and support, especially for young isolated or at-risk parents or caregivers.
  • One-on-one parent coaching to address individual concerns, increase parenting confidence, and encourage capacities for future parenting.
  • Areas addressed may include any aspect of children's social-emotional development including challenging behaviors, developmental milestones or daily routines.
  • Any Island County resident who is requesting or seeking help in their role as a parent can receive services. Parents and caregivers do not need to qualify based on any screening, diagnosis, or professional referral. A special focus will be placed on those who may not qualify for already existing community resources.
