We support adults with Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities to live safe and fulfilling lives through experiences that foster independence and enhance self-esteem. Our representative payee program assists those with Social Security benefits to budget for independent living, and Foundational Community Supports provides benefits for supportive housing and employment.
Our Disability Services programs include our state-recognized Supported Living program and our Meaningful Day recreational day program.
We also provide training to other agencies. We created the first virtual "Train The Trainer" program for the Developmental Disabilities Administration of Washington State.
Meaningful Day is an art-focused activity group hosted by the Carl Gipson Center for people of all abilities, including those with developmental disabilities.
Participants will be encouraged and inspired to express themselves through various mediums including music, collage, painting, and more.
