Our Family Programs

Indoor Playgroups

Children from birth to 5 years old and their caregiver are welcome to attend our playgroups, where we come together to play, sing, read, eat snacks and build community! Playgroups are led by a FamilyWorks staff member or volunteer, and are hosted indoors in our playroom with limited capacity.

We have English and Spanish (Kaleidoscope Play and Learn group) playgroups that are welcome to everyone. Participating in all playgroups is completely free!

By participating in playgroups, children learn social and developmental skills, caregivers and parents gain knowledge in child development and fun, age-appropriate activities, and we all get an opportunity to meet new people and build a supportive community network.

Anyone is free to drop-in to our playgroups!

Virtual Parenting Classes & Workshops

We offer free parenting classes each year along with a variety of workshops related to child growth and development. The parenting classes and workshops are free to participants (except for a small fee if a parenting book is required, with scholarships available for those unable to pay for the book), and will take place virtually via video chat.

These classes require that all participants register before attending by calling our office (206) 647-1780.

Community & Empowerment Programs

Skill-Building, Field Trips, & Participant-Led Programs

Through partnerships with organizations throughout Seattle, we provide opportunities for families and individuals to build resiliency. Whether it be participant-led cooking classes, Up-Close encounters with Woodland Park Zoo animals, or a trip to the museum, these programs contribute to a strong, caring community.

For the time being, all Community & Empowerment Programs will take place outdoors in socially distanced environments.

Drop by the Resource Center or call us at (206) 647-1780 to find out what programs we’re offering now.

Diaper Bank

Did you know that without a regular supply of diapers, families can lose access to childcare services? We understand how vital diapers are, and distribute diapers and baby wipes monthly to families with children age 4 and under. Visit our Family Resource Center during our drop-in hours or the Wallingford Food Bank during distribution hours to sign up and start your diaper pickups.

Community Closet - Kids' Essentials

At FamilyWorks, we hope to provide items and experiences that we believe are essential to being a kid. Anyone can make an appointment to “shop” for free children’s clothes and toys from our Community Closet. 

Drop-in during the Community Closet’s open hours:
Wednesdays: 3 pm – 5 pm
Fridays: 10 am – 12 pm
