Personal Support Services

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 Programs

Our Personal Support 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.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about our programs!
