80,000 babies are born every year in Washington State and everyone caring for a baby needs support and help.
Supporting Our Fund Drive has an Immediate Impact. Strong Connections = Safe Kids.
Our minimum suggested donation for Fall 2023 is $200.
(Gifts of all amounts are welcome and deeply appreciated!)
Please donate now, and we will automatically send you a reminder for our video premiere on October 26th.
Join us for the Premiere of our 2023 Fund Drive Spotlight Video on October 26th!
Please join us on Thursday, October 26th, when we premiere our spotlight video – we’re taking a deep dive into all it takes to create strong families and build vital connections during the first year of a child’s life.
Parenting a baby is filled with everything – with joy, with frustration, guilt and uncertainty. And that’s OK. It’s normal. Parenting is a roller coaster. Your support means we are here to help families, where they are and when they need us! Together, we can keep kids safe and families strong.
The cornerstone of a healthy family is the relationship between parent and baby. All families deserve education and support to ensure their connection with their baby is strong and healthy. Strong connections = safe kids.
Join us for a conversation with Jessup Coffin, our Conscious Fathering Program Coordinator and Kim James, one of our long-time Great Starts Instructors. Kim and Jessup have been working with new families for decades, and have a wealth of professional knowledge, empathy and personal experience to share with you.

Parent Trust Great Starts Instructor, BA, CD(DONA), CD(PALS), ICCE, LCCE, BDT(DONA).
Kim is also an ICEA and Lamaze® International certified childbirth educator. Kim is passionate about her work with new families. As Kim says:
“Effective parenting is one of the best ways to improve the world, and parenting begins with pregnancy and birth. I firmly believe in using any fear and anxiety we might have to examine our choices and beliefs, and find ways of birthing and parenting that are just right for us. When I think about the power of preparing for labor, birth, and parenthood, Maya Angelou sums it up best: ‘When you know better, you do better.'”
