We provide safe and healthy living opportunities for children, ages 5 to 18 in need of a long-term alternative home. The historic campus consists of four large homes, supported by 319 acres of pristine natural settings with opportunities for learning and recreation.
We believe in.. . . .
Hutton Settlement has been in place for nearly a century. Our program provides the stability that is difficult to achieve in short-term foster care. Children’s lives at Hutton are consistent, with brothers, sisters, friends, and other meaningful adults. We give children a stable environment to help strengthen their growth and development.
The Hutton Settlement campus operation is certified by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services as meeting all of the licensing requirements for a residential childcare facility. Children under the care and custody of the state may be placed at The Settlement at no cost to taxpayers. They will maintain a DSHS case monitor and will work in cooperation with the Hutton staff in these responsibilities.
Referrals come from parents, grandparents, family members, case managers, therapists, educators, and other child welfare advocates. The referral process can begin with a simple phone call or e-mail to our office. We will guide you through an evaluation of the child’s needs and the needs of the family. It will then be determined if Hutton Settlement will be in the best interest of the child.
