COMMUNITY RESOURCES & INFORMATION FOR PARENTS & FAMILIES
The mission of the Skamania Klickitat Community Network is to build strong, healthy communities.
There are 42 active Networks across Washington State.
We form a unique state, local, and community partnership in order to support children and families in our local communities by working to reduce Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's). Our Network's focus is to reduce child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, and youth substance abuse throughout Skamania and Klickitat County.
Welcome to our website. Created for families living in Skamania and Klickitat County in Southwest Washington State, it strives to provide accurate and timely parenting information available throughout the region. We hope you find the information you need. Many times it may seem like you are all alone, but your worries and concerns are often shared by many parents. We've all faced situations we've struggled to find solutions for. Check the above links to find local support, classes, answers and ideas.
Oh, to be only half as wonderful as my child thought I was when he was small, and only half as stupid as my teenager now thinks I am. ~ Rebecca Richards
The Skamania Klickitat Community Network meets on the last Friday of each month in White Salmon, Washington at 10:30 am in the Pioneer Center at 501 NE Washington Street, behind the White Salmon Post Office. These meetings are free and open to the public, and we welcome people from both counties interested in strengthening our local families and communities. SKCN also provides small amounts of funding to support community based programs and activities that support our mission by reducing Adverse Childhood Experiences.
