Dare to Reach 2015

We are Daring to Reach for Washington Families like never before!

In Washington State, 1 in 5 kids lives in a household that is struggling to put food on the table. Our immunization exemption rates are 3 times greater than the national average. And 1 in 6 children have developmental delays with only 50% of them being diagnosed before Kindergarten. We could go on and on with all of the issues our state is currently facing but we are ready to stop talking and take some action.

Our work continues to expand and deepen. Whether it is coordinating with stakeholders across the state to help pass hunger legislation or helping thousands of families apply for or renew their health care coverage, our staff is ready to step up, to say ‘YES,’ to dig in and do more to make the connections families need to be healthy.

This year, more than any other,we are reaching beyond our everyday efforts and making a greater difference for Washington families.

We invite you—DARE you—to join us, because we can’t do it alone. We ask you to reach beyond your daily motions, take action, and get involved. Know that you are part of the solution in creating a healthier Washington!
