This community is truly, “Where the Mountains Greet the Sea”.

HFCC Robbery

I was moved and inspired by the Facebook post from Christine Loewe, executive director of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center.  All of us at Healthy Families of Clallam County want to share our sadness at the violation of your center and the disregard for the messages the artists and the Fine Art Center were giving to the community so generously and thoughtfully. 

Healthy Families was also broken into on April 10 and 11.  Taken were new mattresses, multiple bunkbeds, all our tools, new clothing and toys for our clients, multiple large screen televisions and various other things.  We have pix from our security cameras and will be posting some soon. 

If you recognize any of the vehicles or people, please call Port Angeles Police Department non-emergency number or Healthy families at 360-452-3811.

The message we give to the community is that we are honored to serve all victims of all crimes including domestic and sexual violence.  Let’s embrace intolerance for violators of this community’s peace and feeling of safety and grow tolerance for the oppressed and violated.  

Congratulations Crystal and Goobi Ubi!!!

In 2019, an alien crash-landed on planet Earth and made friends with HFCC Prevention Specialist, Daryl Trowbridge. Because the alien’s name was incomprehensible (and un-pronounceable), Daryl, began referring to him “Mike” (the name of one of Daryl’s best friend in high school). And, because earth friendships differed vastly from those on “Mike’s” home planet, Daryl decided to bring Mike along to have students teach him what being a friend means here.

“Mike” accompanied Daryl on prevention education presentations throughout Clallam County, meeting with elementary school-aged students. At these presentations, students taught “Mike” about the importance of being considerate, kind, empathetic, and helpful and about sharing with one another and respect each others’ boundaries. Additionally, students shared with “Mike” that friends don’t have to look the same, be able to do the same things, or even like all of the same things.

A “name-the-alien” contest was launched as well, with names coming in from schools and organizations in Clallam Bay, Sequim, Port Angeles, La Push, and Joyce. After receiving several dozen suggestions, HFCC staff voted on the entries and “Goobi Ubi,” a name submitted by Crystal Adams of Sequim (and the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe) was chosen. In addition to bragging rights, Crystal also won a $25 WalMart gift card.

Congratulations Crystal and Goobi Ubi!

Thank you, Morgan!!!

A big THANK YOU to Morgan Lasher, a senior at Port Angeles High School shown here with staff for spending the last couple of years buying art supplies on clearance and creating 50 “covid-safe art kits”. Today she gifted these to Healthy Families of Clallam County for use in our Holiday Joy program and for young clients. Morgan was inspired by our Prevention Educator Daryl Trowbridge who speaks to students in our local schools.
Thanks Morgan!!
