Innovative Services NW has been serving some of the most vulnerable populations in Clark County, Washington since 1963. We began when a small group of parents established an activity program for their children, including adult children, with disabilities. In 1965 we incorporated as a nonprofit with a $1,430 budget and two part-time staff serving 15 individuals per month. Today, we have a $6 million budget for the entire organization and 120 employees who serve more than 2,100 children, adults, and families each year, many on a daily or weekly basis.
PURPOSE & MISSION
Our core purpose at Innovative Services NW is to support possibilities for everyone. We do this by delivering innovative programs that give opportunity for children and adults in our community to become more self-reliant through therapeutic, educational, and employment services.
We’re all in. We show up, work hard, and take personal responsibility in everything we do. We have the courage to say and do the difficult things. All while staying true to our word and kind to ourselves.
We go beyond. We’re passionate about pushing boundaries and respectfully challenging assumptions. We’re flexible and willing to take risks. Together, we’ll do more than anyone thought possible.
We build community. We embrace our differences and welcome one and all in a safe, trusting place. We’re inclusive in our relationships. We build connections that make our community stronger.
