Mission and Goals
Our mission is to work collaboratively with diverse groups to eliminate children's harmful environmental exposures in the Puget Sound region and beyond during their most critical developmental years: pre-conception to age eight.
Our Mission and Goals statement emphasizes the need for diverse groups to come together to identify gaps and overlaps in messages, services and campaigns, as each member group works to eliminate children's harmful environmental exposures.
