SnoKing Healthy Start Program

Healthy Start is for families with children
under the age of 3
Healthy Start is an intensive free parent education program for young families who have children under the age of 3 years.

The SnoKing Healthy Start program was established in 1997 and serves both King and Snohomish counties including Shoreline. It is administered by Northshore Youth and Family Services.

This program has served several hundred families during its twenty-two years of operation.

The Healthy Start Family Support Specialist provides monthly visits, group activities, health and support screenings, educational activities and connections to community resources.

Our Shoreline Healthy Start Board, in collaboration with the Richmond Beach Congregational Church, supports the young parents by supplying diapers, books, toys and gift cards.

Our Healthy Start program is also supported by Shoreline Rotary and the Dale Turner Y.

Research on the Healthy Start home visiting model has shown it reduces the incidence of child abuse and neglect, promotes optimal child development and prepares children to be ready to learn in school.

Healthy Starts’ goal is to give each baby or child served a healthy, happy home and the best possible start.
