We believe in supporting children and families who have entered the child welfare system so they can fully realize their potential.

In 2004, Children's Home Society of Washington became the home of Catalyst for Kids (CFK), which emphasized the safety and well-being of children . CFK’s pioneering work brought the voice of parent allies who have successfully navigated the child welfare system into the development of strategies and policies to strengthen and improve the system.

Today, the nationally recognized “parent ally movement” is flourishing through contributions of the Washington State Parent Ally Committee and the Parents for Parents programs in the state.
