Make a difference in the lives of families, together.
We’re coming together to better partner with children, families and communities to make a difference. By working with families, we seek to elevate and strengthen relationships for lasting well-being. We’d love your support.
Akin partners with caregivers and communities to strengthen families, prevent childhood trauma and prepare children for a lifetime of well-being. We accept referrals from families, professionals such as pediatricians, physicians, social workers, nurses, childcare providers, and a range of referral partners.

Are Children’s Home Society of Washington and Childhaven going away?
Absolutely not. Quite the opposite actually. By joining forces we’re better able to serve families and communities across our state.
Why the merger?
Simple: Impact. The need of Washington state’s families is urgent and great. Together we can use our resources to fulfill our shared mission of strengthening family well-being by partnering with children and adults, together.
We believe the new name, Akin, provides a clear association with family, children and connection, conveying the idea of relationship and unity. The name links the organizational focus on prevention with the service model and our forward trajectory.
What will happen to the services I know today?
The programs and services that you are familiar with will remain 100% intact. Nothing changes — we are still going to be there for the families we are serving now.
What will happen to my team?
They’ll be here for you just like always. Nothing changes about their dedication to working with you for the future of your family.
