Making the World More Inclusive of People with Disabilities.
Making Business and Education Better through Inclusion.
From the Start, Northwest Center has Defied the Status Quo
In 1965, a group of Seattle moms founded Northwest Center to prove their children with disabilities could learn. Today, we’re determined to remove the barriers to inclusion at school and work. Our services empower people with disabilities from birth to retirement to reach their highest potential, and we train schools and businesses to embrace inclusive, anti-ableist practices that benefit everyone.
