Advocating for Long-Term Health Solutions for Families

We believe all families deserve to be healthy. WithinReach leads a collaborative effort with key partners, providers and policy-makers to connect community health and social service systems together so that we can serve families better. By identifying the barriers and inefficiencies in these systems, we are able to build policies that improve the whole system.

We strive to be a powerful voice in Olympia with elected officials in every corner of the state. WithinReach’s top priority for the 2020 legislative session is to build and enhance Help Me Grow Washington statewide and integrate Help Me Grow with the early learning system in Washington.

Many kids face barriers that hinder their health, development and learning opportunities. Help Me Grow is a family linkage system that works together with a network of communities across Washington to create a resource grid of services and supports. Help Me Grow listens to families, links them to services and provides ongoing support.

The Help Me Grow Washington network represents an ever-growing, powerful coalition of communities and individuals invested in an ambitious and resourceful early childhood system that optimally serves all families and children.
