Children & Families
Child & Family Services at Valley Cities help to build stronger communities by supporting children of all ages (including infants and toddlers), and their families with services that holistically address emotional and behavioral challenges, trauma, and basic needs. Services include individual therapy, family therapy, groups for children, youth, and parents, and peer support for parents. The Family Support Program in Federal Way provides teen groups, after school and summer activities, and parenting classes.
We partner with children and their families, and other important people in their lives, to: help them grow and succeed; meet basic needs in all areas of their lives; and work toward wellness and build resilience. We help children and their families build their own networks of support and how to talk and work with others. They learn to use skills and tools for daily living based on their own strengths. We listen and help them find their own voice and learn how to get the help they need. Building resiliency is about feeling a sense of hope, purpose and value.
