WorkFirst Program

Cowlitz County Health & Human Services receives referrals from the State of Washington Department of Social & Health Services to provide Public Health Nursing evaluations of children's special needs to determine a parent's ability to participate in Washington State's WorkFirst program. The evaluations usually result in parents being referred to community resources, such as Childcare Resource and Referral, HeadStart, and other resources.


This service can only be provided to families referred by the Department of Social & Health Services.
