Becca Roy from the Parent Trust for Washington Children stopped by last Monday's Seattle Food Committee meeting to share information about the services they provide that might be helpful for food bank clients with children. Here's what she had to say:
Parent Trust for Washington Children (PTWC) is a locally-based, state-wide family support non-profit. We offer a range of family support services that are free to low-cost, which can all be found on our website: www.parenttrust.org. Two in particular we would like to highlight are the child development screening program and the Family Help Line, which are both FREE.
The developmental screenings are designed for children ages 1-month to 5-years old, and explore large and fine motor development, communication, problem solving, and personal/social development. We also provide fun, interactive activities, and answer parents' concerns and questions. For more information, check out our website: www.parenttrust.org/asq.
Another valuable resource provided by PTWC is the Family Help Line. Parents can call 1-800-932-4673 for parenting information, referrals to community services, and support. Call as often and as many times as wanted. We're here and happy to help.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Hand in Hand,
