In-Home Family Counseling Supervisor


The Institute for Family Development (IFD) is recognized as a leader in providing services designed to keep children and youth safe, strengthen families, and reduce the need for placing youth into state-funded care. Evidence has overwhelmingly shown that empowering families and teaching parents new skills produces better outcomes and is less expensive than removing children from the home. Founded in 1982, we are one of the largest providers of evidence-based services to youth and families involved in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems in Washington State.



IFD provides a variety of in-home family counseling services to families involved in the state child welfare system. Services provided include Family Preservation Services (FPS), Parent Child Interaction Training (PCIT), Project SafeCare, Triple P: Positive Parenting Program, Promoting First Relationships (PFR), and more.
