Clallam County Services
Helping Clallam County families lead healthy, productive lives
For almost 30 years, LCS Northwest has empowered Clallam County families and individuals beset by trauma and poverty to become good parents and financially self-sufficient. We provide an array of services and access to community-based resources necessary for them to sustain healthy, stable households free of abuse, neglect, illness, isolation, hunger and homelessness.
Our services include:
- Basic needs and crisis assistance
- Resource information and community referrals
- Assistance signing up for food stamps, Washington Basic Health and other government programs
- Computer access for job search
- Child Check preschool screenings
- Parent coaching
- Classes on budget management, health and nutrition
Child Check is a universal and free screening program for social, emotional and behavioral development kids 18 months to kindergarten. The program also provides parenting support and resource referrals to Clallam County parents with a focus on helping parents learn more about the development of their children and to encourage the adoption of effective parenting practices.
We offer Survival Budgeting, a flexible seven-week financial education course. The class assists families with little to no banking experience who are often the target of predatory lenders. The curriculum focuses on providing skills and tools to help families bank and save money, understand borrowing basics and create a basic budget.
We organize two community events in Port Angeles: Kids Fest in the spring and a Back to School Fair in August.
