WSLI is a collective impact initiative.
Our Mission: To elevate family voice: provide connections so that family voice is respected, amplified, and heard in order to support Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs and their families at all levels in Washington.
Our Vision: Children, individuals, and families in Washington State, including those with special health care needs, will be healthy, safe, resilient, and included.
Our Values: We value meaningful partnerships with communities and families so that we can:
work towards collective impact,
engage in cross systems partnerships statewide,
utilize public health frameworks, and
promote equity and inclusion.
Our Partners are made up of family-led non-profit and community- based organizations who provide training and support to parents of children and youth with special health care needs.
