What is Northwest Center?

Northwest Center has been creating a more inclusive world since 1965, when four mothers refused to accept that their children would be rejected from school and society. They founded Northwest Center, led the passage of landmark legislation that opened school doors to children with disabilities, and made history. Since then, Northwest Center has advanced equal opportunities for children and adults with disabilities, providing early support, early education, school-age programs, and employment services.
