Program Manager
Through early engagement, support, and education, this program helps parents with a dependency case quickly and safely reunify with their children.

Parents for Parents is a Snohomish County program that promotes the safe and timely reunification of families with a dependency case through early engagement in peer mentoring and education on the dependency system and processes.  

Parent Ally Mentors, who have successfully reunited their own families after a dependency case, provide support to parents who are new to the process, and can provide assistance at dependency hearings.  

Educational classes, Dependency 101 and 201, help parents overcome barriers they might encounter throughout the dependency process. 

Topics covered in Dependency 101 include court etiquette, resources if a child is removed from the home, how to write a statement for the court, parent’s rights, the dependency timeline, family drug treatment court, and key players in the dependency process.  

Dependency 201 addresses other barriers that can challenge progress, helps parents develop a positive support network, and provides an in-depth look at the process requirements, such as visitation, parenting and life skills, housing, child care, education, and employment.  

Eligibility & Enrollment

This program serves Snohomish County parents who are newly engaged in an open dependency case with Child Welfare Services.

How to Support Domestic Violence Survivors

October 18, 2019 Blog Post
It’s National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and YWCA is taking a stand. The domestic violence (DV) program at YWCA works to support survivors that have experienced gender-based violence to overcome their trauma and barriers and to empower them to take back their self-autonomy. We would like to invite our community to spread awareness of gender-based violence and support survivors with YWCA.
