Family Connects of Pierce County

What is Family Connects?

Whether you are a new or experienced parent, we all have unique needs when bringing a new baby into our family! Family Connects is here to answer your questions and bridge the gaps between families, providers, and community resources to ensure you have the support you and your growing family need to grow and thrive.

Family Connects Pierce County offers voluntary nurse support to all families with newborns during a baby’s first 3 months of life. This means foster, adoptive, and birthing families. An experienced nurse will support parents with a medical checkup for the birthing parent and baby, and ensure they are connected to community resources as they continue on their parenting journey.

We are committed to racial equity, and strive to provide inclusive, culturally sensitive postpartum care to every family we serve. All services are free of cost and offered to anyone in the community, when the program is fully implemented.
