Children and Families

Investing in Seattle's children and families is a smart strategy. Healthy families provide the kind of loving and supportive environment that children need to thrive. Healthy families also build safe and vibrant communities and strengthen neighborhood schools, which in turn benefits the entire city.

The City of Seattle builds community and organizational partnerships to provide a strong support system for children and families in five primary areas:

The Seattle Human Services Department focuses on providing these important services to children, low-income families and special populations such as deaf and deaf/blind parents, teen parents and immigrants and refugees.
