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

A Common Voice is a 501c3 nonprofit Family Support Organization since 1995, formally only serving Pierce County, WA. All Staff and Board Members are parents with lived experience of parenting a child/youth with complex behavioral healthcare needs.
Now serving Statewide: The Center of Parent Excellence (C.O.P.E.) Project exists in part because the Washington State Health Care Authortiy (HCA) heard and values family voice. The C.O.P.E. Project was designed in partnership with the HCA and A Common Voice to provide statewide Parent support in system navigation to parents and caregivers across the entire state of Washington.
