We know that the situation with COVID-19 is unnerving, and that each day brings new realities and challenges. WithinReach is adapting and responding in a way that both prioritizes the health and safety of our staff, and allows us to continue serving Washington families in the best way possible.

We know that finding help can be complicated and confusing. It’s not always clear what resources are out there, where to find reliable information, or how to determine if you qualify for support. WithinReach helps families understand and apply for a variety of nutrition and health resources, such as Basic Food (food stamps); the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); and health insurance. In addition, WithinReach offers personalized support in finding food banks, health clinics and parenting resources close to home, and can assist with early childhood development screenings and reduced-cost transit fare.

We remain committed to your health, and as your partner, will work to ensure you get access to the resources you need. Here are the best ways to connect with us while we require our staff to work from home:

  • Call our Help Me Grow Washington Hotline at 1-800-322-2588. If you have to leave a message, we’ll call you back as soon as possible. Our hotline hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Friday, 8 a.m to 5 p.m. The WithinReach staff is multilingual, and serves people in a variety of languages through the AT&T Language Line.
  • Contact us through the online form on our website, ParentHelp123.org.

We’ll continue to keep you informed during this critical time. On behalf of all of us at WithinReach, stay healthy and be well.
