Every child deserves to be safe, healthy and loved, which is why NW Children’s Fund dedicates itself to ending the complicated cycle of child abuse and neglect.

Join us. Together, we are making hope work.



NW Children's Fund works to end the cycle of child abuse and neglect. We know that breaking this complicated intergenerational cycle requires a multi-faceted strategy: We must intervene and help fragile victims heal when maltreatment has already occurred, and must also work to keep it from happening – both now and in the next generation.

That is why NW Children’s Fund impacts several critical points in the cycle.  

Through our EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH AND CONVENING, we facilitate systemic change. Bringing together diverse players in the field to learn and connect, we create collaborations that ultimately lead to a more cohesive community framework for preventing and addressing the underlying causes of child abuse and neglect.

Enjoy the resources from our 2017 Forum, The Amazing Adolescent Brain: Opportunities, Challenges and Promising Interventions, January 31, at the Washington State Convention Center.

Through our GRANTMAKING, we help local agencies that provide the support systems children need to be in a safe, nurturing environment, alleviating the stresses and deficiencies that can lead to abuse and neglect. We provide grants to programs that:

Heal Abused Children by providing counseling and treatment for our youngest victims of abuse and neglect.

Help At-Risk Youth by teaching them how to make good decisions and fulfill their potential through mentoring, tutoring and other opportunities.

Strengthen Fragile Families by reaching out to those coping with homelessness, mental illness, substance abuse and domestic violence – some of the strongest risk factors for child abuse and neglect.
