Strengthening Families Washington is an initiative within the Department of Youth, Children and Families (DYCF) that focuses on helping families strengthen family bonds, understand childhood development, cope with the challenges of parenting and develop positive discipline skills. By reaching out to parents and encircling them with support, we can help strengthen families, which protects children and builds stronger communities overall. Preventing child abuse and neglect is an important way to promote healthy child and family development. Strengthening Families Washington administers the Children's Trust Fund of Washington, which accepts public and private donations to support child abuse and neglect prevention. There are several ways to contribute: Keep Kids Safe License Plates, Heirloom Birth Certificates and private donations.
