A Message From Our Executive Director
Independence Northwest is unlike any other service provider you may have tried before. Our organization is run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities. Most of the people on our staff, management and board have personally faced the same barriers you face everyday. We've learned how to surmount many of the obstacles that stood in the way of our leading more independent lives. We can show you how to do the same.
We know that people with disabilities, no matter how severe the disability, can lead productive, independent and happy lives. We know because we've done it ourselves. Whatever your age, whatever your disability, we can help you achieve what you once believed was only a dream. We will work with you every step of the way, lending a hand, providing support, as you make your way to a more independent life.
