A Common Voice | C.O.P.E. Project

The COPE project was developed as a support to enhance our System of Care framework. The project is intended to provide a pathway for Washington State parents who are accessing and navigating the children’s behavioral health system to have peer support to ease their journey, whenever possible.
Support is provided by A Common Voice, a statewide, family-run nonprofit organization that provides advocacy and support for families whose children have intensive behavioral health needs.
