Who We Are

The Consortium brings together community coalitions, service providers, school districts, and other partners serving children and families in Skagit County.

What We Do

  • Provide community education and discussion forum opportunities.
  • Form partnerships to strengthen existing resources.
  • Identify gaps or overlaps in services for children and families most at-risk of academic failure, dropping out of school, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and homelessness in Skagit County.
  • Develop the means to fill those gaps and increase service capacity.
  • Promote best practices.

When We Meet

The Consortium meets the third Wednesday of the month during the academic year from 9:00 – 10:30 AM in the Community Room 320 Pacific Place in Mount Vernon.  

Upcoming Event:

Meet & Greet – October 17th from 9:00 – 11:00am at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Mount Venon.

REGISTER HERE Please join us for the second annual Meet & Greet.  This is an opportunity to meet other people from family-serving organizations.     The Meet & Greet is a structured event that will allow each participant to share a brief overview (2-3 minutes) of your organization and programs.  Sharing will happen in small groups that will rotate several times throughout the event to maximize sharing.  There will be unstructured time at the end to follow up or meet others. Please bring handouts and business cards to share.   There is no cost for this event, but please register so we can plan for the appropriate number of participants. Feel free to share with others!
