Join us for one of our annual events and help us stop child abuse in Washington State’s South Sound Region!

Family Education & Support Services’ special events help raise much-needed funds that support our vital programs and services, and increase our exposure to the community, to educate and promote the valuable work we do.

Strengthening Families Conference
Washington State’s South Puget Sound’s premier family support training conference! Learn from top experts in the field, meet colleagues from all over the region, earn Social Work and Early Childhood CEUs, and enjoy a community resource fair. (more to come soon)

Pinwheels for Prevention
Each April, we plant Pinwheels for Prevention to recognize Child Abuse Prevention month. This year, we are encouraging our supporters to come together across Lewis, Mason and Thurston Counties as we plant Pinwheels for Hope to show our community’s commitment and dedication to this issue. Learn more.

Seeds of Hope Gala & Auction
Our annual gala raises critical funds to support our mission to stop child abuse in Washington. This event has been postponed until further notice.
