Family Support

Families are a critical component of a strong and vibrant city. Healthy families raise healthy kids who go on to do the same to fill our city and our neighborhoods with active, engaged community members.

Raising a family can be difficult and many families need support. The City of Seattle offers a number of resources and support services that can help all types of families including teen parents, homeless families, immigrant and refugee families and deaf, deaf/blind and hard of hearing parents. The family support programs listed below connect families to the people, places and programs that can help.
