Children are our most valuable and valued resource. At Children's Home Society of Washington (CHSW), we see the promise and potential in every child. A dynamic leader in child welfare since 1896, we are Washington's oldest and largest statewide non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children.
We provide exceptional programs and services to support children in need and strengthen families in 30 sites across the state. Our programs are shaped by 115 years of experience, a strong mission, and a commitment to meeting the changing needs of families in today's complex world.
Our programs help to prevent or address the unique challenges facing our state's most vulnerable children. We work to find best solutions for all the children we serve, supporting them when they remain with their biological families or when they must leave home. CHSW's core services include: adoption, early learning, foster care, family support, child and family counseling, and advocacy.
Working in schools, community centers, and facilities across the state, CHSW staff and volunteers are turning the hope of a happy, safe childhood into reality every day. This year, we'll help more than 39,000 children and families in need. Learn about how you can get involved.
