Values & Beliefs
The Washington State Parent Ally Committee (WSPAC) is an association of Parent Allies, who have successfully navigated the child welfare system, who collaborate to improve outcomes for families entering that system.
The WSPAC brings the parent voice into the development of child welfare policy and practice; promotes improved and equitable outcomes for all children and parents; and advocates for parent leadership in the direct service, training and public awareness activities that strengthen and support those families. We do this by networking, training and developing parent ally leaders, and educating policy-makers about issues of relevance to families in the child welfare system. Parent Ally members are empowered to use their voices to create change in the systems that support families and also within their own lives.
