Parenting Together Washington County (PTWC) strives to bring families and communities together. PTWC promotes and supports opportunities to learn from each other in parenting education classes, workshops and family-friendly activities. Parents and community partners are encouraged to explore the website and share resources and events. Reach out and connect to a new resource; attend a workshop or parenting classes; take a family field trip to a school, library, park, museum, or special event!

Child-Parent Learning Supports such as VROOM; Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) kits and multilingual library collections help parents explore how they can support their children’s efforts to learn and succeed.

Early Connections provides a single access point for resources for expecting families and those with children under three. Resources include home visiting programs such as Healthy Families, Nurse Family Partnership, Family Relief Nurseries and other community-based resources.

Family Resource Coordinators work within school districts to connect families with young children to local resources and provide one-on-one support.

Substance Abuse Prevention for Youth is an effort to organize local and statewide efforts to advocate for social-emotional learning in schools and early childhood settings as well as to recognize the value of applying a trauma-informed lens to all of our work. Provides support to local drug and alcohol prevention coalitions, evidence-based parenting education, and works with local law enforcement in prevention efforts.
