The Snohomish County Family Center has been responding to the needs of the community since 1942, when it was known as the Catholic Children's Bureau which offered two programs in the community: Foster Care and Adoptions. When a community needs assessment process was undertaken in 1981, those needs changed resulting in the growth into the current multi-service family center located in Everett, Washington. The center’s definition of success is found in its philosophy, which embraces individualized, needs-driven, strength-based services. This philosophy shapes and affirms our partnership with the individuals, families and communities that we serve. Our mission is to serve men, women and children who come to us for assistance, with compassion and understanding while supporting and promoting self-sufficiency. We believe every child should grow up in a safe, loving, nurturing environment, in joining with others to change systems which oppress, discriminate or otherwise cause human suffering, and to work towards affirming and supporting a healthy family life.
