“This generous commitment from NW Children’s Foundation gives us the ability to plan for the future – while providing support to parents and families today,” says Linda McDaniels, Executive Director of Parent Trust. “This funding is an investment in child abuse prevention that will prevent the long-term fall-out from the pandemic from hurting our most vulnerable families for decades to come.”

NW Children’s Foundation is a leading voice in keeping children safe – aligning resources, organizations, and passionate individuals committed to ending the intergenerational cycle of child abuse, neglect, and trauma. “We are proud to be a longtime partner of Parent Trust,” says NWCF Chief Program Officer Adrienne Heile. “And we are so pleased to be able to invest in their work at a time when it is needed more than ever.”
