The End of Child Abuse is an Idea Whose Time has Come.

Brigid Collins Family Support Center is a non-profit dedicated to doing just that throughout Northwest Washington and all of Whatcom and Skagit Counties.

Brigid Collins provides a wide range of services, from healing and justice at two nationally accredited Children's Advocacy Centers to parenting education and support through cutting-edge, evidence-based parenting programs like Incredible Years and Parent Child Interaction Therapy. For the community, we envision a shift in cultural norms and aim to teach all adults how they can prevent, recognize and react responsibly to suspicions of child sexual abuse.
