Because kids don’t come with instructions. Receive text messages to help you in your parenting journey. We cover it all: tantrums, nutrition, brain-building activities, local events, and much more!  Messages are based on your child’s age, from pregnancy through age 8. Start anytime by texting SKAGIT to 274448. Bright by Text is a non-profit organization. They don’t sell advertising space or share information.

Parenting Classes

United General District 304 offers a variety of free parenting programs throughout the year, including the popular Incredible Years series for parents and caregivers of 1-4-year-olds. Visit the Parenting Classes portion of our website for upcoming programs.

Family Treks

Family Treks is a free program for families with children 0-5 years of age. This program gives parents the opportunity to connect with other parents and explore local parks and trails with their children. Fun activities are included on the walk! 

Need equipment to enjoy the outing? We have a free lending library with jackets, rainboots, baby carriers, umbrellas, infant snowsuits, and more that can be used during the walk.

We’re Reading Program

We’re Reading is a literacy program for children between the ages of 6 months and five years developed by United Way of Skagit County. Twice per year during WIC visits, families receive a nutrition inspired children’s book along with a handout packed with ways to continue the reading fun at home.

Ask us about your free “We’re Reading” book at your next WIC visit.

The Skagit Fruit & Veggie Prescription Program is a free year-long healthy eating program that supports folks with vouchers to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at participating stores and farmers’ markets. The program also provides recipes, nutrition information, and ideas for storing and preparing fresh produce. Visit the FVRx webpage for more information!

Just had a baby or expecting soon? Sign up on the NurtureNW website and get matched with a mentor—a real parent who will check in by text every week from your third trimester through your baby’s first birthday. They’ll cheer for the little victories, troubleshoot your sleep schedule, and help you get ready for the transition to parenthood. Boost your emotional wellness and give your little one’s brain a big head start with the help of a parent mentor. It’s free, confidential, and all through text.

United General District 304 hosts WIC clinics and many more programs that support families in our community. Our work focuses on six areas of wellbeing: Active Living, Community & Professional Education, Engaged Youth & Communities, Healthy Eating, Thriving Children & Families, and Stewarding Assets & Opportunities.
