Who We Are
The Consortium brings together community coalitions, service providers, school districts, and other partners serving children and families in Skagit County.
What We Do
- Provide community education and discussion forum opportunities.
- Form partnerships to strengthen existing resources.
- Identify gaps or overlaps in services for children and families most at-risk of academic failure, dropping out of school, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and homelessness in Skagit County.
- Develop the means to fill those gaps and increase service capacity.
- Promote best practices.
