ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION
Founded in 1963, ChildStrive is a growing non-profit agency serving children and families in Snohomish and north
King Counties. We are pioneers and respected leaders in providing family centered parenting support and early
intervention services to pregnant women and young children birth through 3 years old.
ChildStrive partners with families to support young children’s success in daily life and in the community.
Our vision is that all children will succeed in school and in life.
We serve our community through four programs:
Early Support for Infants and Toddlers serves families with children birth to three years of age who have a
developmental delay or identified disability;
Nurse Family Partnership serves first time pregnant women through pregnancy and until their child turns
two years of age;
Parents as Teachers serves families who are pregnant or have a young child who are living with trauma or
chronic hardships, including housing instability or poverty.
Community Outreach serves families with preschoolers who are homeless and living in shelters or who are
isolated and lack support. The Outreach program also partners with the Tulalip Tribes and provides consultation
services to childcare providers serving families in transitional housing.
ECEAP (Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program) is a high quality preschool and family development
program for underserved families in partnership with Snohomish County and the State of Washington.
At ChildStrive our workplace is a direct reflection of our work with the families we serve.
We ask our families about their hopes and dreams and we recognize that the hope of dreams of our staff extend
beyond their work life.
We build family capacity through strength based coaching, reflection, and information sharing. Whether you are a
seasoned professional or a recent graduate, we systematically support our staff to reach their full potential. You’ll
work alongside talented professionals and have built-in opportunities for continuing education, reflective
supervision, pursuing your passions and sharing your knowledge.
We collaborate with families and our community partners in meaningful, effective ways; relationships are at the core of
our work. You’ll find a trusted “home” on your transdisciplinary work team and experience the results of deep,
authentic collaboration across the agency.
We continually adapt and improve to best meet our families’ needs, and maintain accountability in the process.
Whether working with a challenging family, or improving agency wide effectiveness, you’ll roll up your sleeves to
solve problems and have the freedom to implement solutions. Our “intent based leadership” philosophy means that
every employee takes responsibility for ChildStrive’s success and how we accomplish our mission.
