Success Story

Elaine was using both drugs and alcohol by age 11. She was removed from her home because her mother was physically abusing her and was mentally ill. As an adult, Elaine too lost custody of her children. She could not break the multi-generational cycle of abuse alone. Elaine’s journey back began at Partners, where she played on the floor with her youngest son and learned to be a healthy and nurturing parent.

A Message to Our Clients

We are still serving behavioral health clients remotely and “urgent" cases onsite at our CAC. Please contact 509-473-4810 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Partners is considered an "essential business", however our building is closed to the public during this time.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, we have all been asked to follow Washington State’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy order, which has led to the closures of schools, dental offices, courtrooms and  has even changed the way the Department of Children, Youth & Families – Child Welfare (DCYF) interacts with families.These closures and social distancing efforts have limited mandatory reporters’ access to children and youth, making it harder to detect abuse or neglect and leaving many children at risk. Please be the eyes and ears and report any suspected child abuse or neglect 24/7 by calling 866-363-4276 find more information HERE.
