TURN YOUR PASSION TO ACTION

As NWCF enters its fourth decade of work, we’re harnessing the power of collaboration to lead the fight against child abuse and neglect, providing more opportunities for dedicated people to join hands and finds solutions together.

2019 COMMUNITY FORUM

The 2019 NW Children’s Foundation Forum, Community Trauma and Child Well-Being: Trauma-Informed Care and the Future of Healing, held on January 31 at the Washington State Convention Center, was a great success! 

We are very thankful for the four extraordinary people – Dr. Shawn Ginwright, CEO of Flourish Agenda; Dr. Benjamin Danielson, Seattle pediatrician and community leader; Kaaren Andrews, principal of Interagency Academy; and Sheila Capestany, Senior Advisor for Children and Youth of King County Best Starts for Kids – for their inspiring and thought-provoking presentations at the NWCF Forum!

They encouraged us to challenge ourselves and push out of our comfort zones; to focus on our humanity and connection; to lead not only with good intentions but with action and love. They encouraged us to understand how racism, poverty and toxic stress influence us and the children we care for, and to know there is always a possibility of healing. THANK YOU!
