Far West Family Services

Your Employee Assistance Program since 1978

Announcement from Far West

For the past 19 years, it has been an honor and privilege for Far West Family Services to provide EAP services to school districts and public agencies in northwest Washington. We have really enjoyed working with teachers, bus drivers, para-educators, food service handlers, etc., and most recently fire fighters! Far West was founded 43 years ago when it began providing services to the Northshore School District in 1978, and many districts following in the coming years.

Now it is time for us to retire and close the doors of Far West. We will be closing on August 31, 2022.  We know for many of you this is difficult news to hear, but we also know your districts care deeply about your well-being and will provide you another excellent EAP service for you and your family. Your district will announce your new provider at a later date.
