LifeSPAN has joined Together Center, a one-stop human services campus serving East King County. Board President Sue Willey introduced her program to campus agencies at a meeting of Together Center agency leaders this week.
LifeSPAN supports families in developing a safe, secure and quality future for their relatives with disabilities. Through planning, people are able to help their family members with disabilities to set a course for the future, have financial security, live in a place of their own choice, participate in a caring and hospitable community and have their wishes supported by family and friends.
“One of our most meaningful tools is networks for each person with a disability,” Willey told the Together Center agencies. “Each person has a network of 4 to as many as 16 people to provide social supports and provide avenues to share mutual interests and pursue a quality future.”
The LifeSPAN office is staffed part-time. Call 425-883-9867 for more information or visit www.lifespan-wa.org.
One of the first nonprofit multi-tenant centers in the nation, Together Center (formerly, Family Resource Center) was designed first and foremost to lower barriers to finding help. Where East King County residents once needed to travel from Bothell to Renton or beyond to find help at individual locations, people from throughout the Eastside now find comprehensive assistance at one location in downtown Redmond.
