This Month’s Issue

April is here, and at ParentMap that means it’s time to celebrate this year’s superheroes! Each year, we spotlight inspiring people and organizations who lift up Washington kids and families, enhancing their lives and making the world a little bit better. Each is inspiring in their own right. As a group, they are a formidable force for good. Get to know each of these incredible individuals working to make our community stronger.

After you’ve met our superheroes, check out another place to find community — local food halls. Consider them your new secret weapon in the picky-eater food wars. Then take a stroll through Ravenna. With its charming parks and inviting eateries, this Seattle neighborhood it’s an ideal place to spend a low-key day. As always, our jam-packed monthly Play List has what you need to make it through April’s showers.
