Stand up and be counted! Become a member of the Washington County Coalition for Children

Washington County is a wonderful place to live work, and visit. From Narragansett to Westerly, the region has a magnificent coastline, precious farmland, irreplaceable natural areas, and wonderful communities. But all is not well for our 25,000 children:

  • Nearly 1 of every 5 qualifies for subsidized school lunches, child care, and health care.
  • Homelessness among families is rising.
  • Support services, such as counseling and parenting classes, do not reach all the most vulnerable families.
  • Teenage pregnancy rates are high in some towns.
Washington County Coalition for Children members are area health and social service providers, educators, community leaders, parents and concerned residents. Our mission: "to be a voice that advocates for the health and well-being of children and families in Washington County, serving as catalyst and facilitator for improved services. The Coalition:
  • Researches and publishes comprehensive town-by-town statistics on the well-being of County children.
  • Convenes monthly workshops for doctors and mental health professionals who care for children with behavioral health problems and developmental disabilities.
  • Promotes emotional literacy among 2nd graders through an annual bookmark design contest
  • Organizes a holiday gift drive for teens with Casey's Grill & Bar in Wakefield.
  • Offers a free Behavioral Health directory and other resources on a regularly-updated website.
