Children/Families – Prevention

 LifeWorks NW prevention programs build on a child’s or family’s strengths. Designed to counter the negative influences children face, our recognized programs provide life skills for positive development.


Our wide range of tailored prevention services for children and families includes:

Support and Education – Families
For parents and families with school age children (elementary through high school) struggling with problem behaviors, we offer community and in-home parent education and training classes.

Support and Education – Young Parents
Supporting the healthy family development of young parents and parents-to-be, many who are teens, our New Parent Network provides basic parenting skills education, and social support groups to help reduce isolation.

Tobacco Prevention and Education for African Americans
LifeWorks NW provides tobacco education and addiction prevention services tailored to the particular needs of the African-American community.

Children’s Relief Nursery
LifeWorks NW provides child abuse and neglect prevention services through our Children’s Relief Nursery program.

Additional Help
LifeWorks NW also provides additional prevention services for children, teens, and families. These services include transition support for at-risk middle schoolers, programs that get parents involved in schools and after-school programs in low-income housing communities. Participation in these programs is arranged through the appropriate government agency or school.
