WA Legislators Visit CTC’s Tacoma Center

On September 7, we welcomed Rep. Mari Leavitt 28th LD (far left in photo) and Rep. Lisa Callan 5th LD (center) who joined our CEO Nichelle Brown (right) for a tour of our Tacoma center. We’re so grateful to them both for being champions of our capital budget request — our Tacoma center is in Rep. Leavitt’s district! — and to Rep. Callan for the work she does on a variety of topics including early learning, k-12 education, and behavioral health. We’re fortunate to have State representatives that care so deeply about CTC’s children and families!

Free Residential Assessments

Our friends at Informing Families recently shared this news item with us:

Thanks to a generous grant from the Developmental Disabilities Council’s Dan Thompson Memorial Fund, Parents4Housing can now provide free Residential Assessments to families in Washington state. As a family member, completing a Residential Assessment (RA) will help you explore housing possibilities and make a plan for the future of your family member with IDD.
