Welcome to the Independence Northwest Customer Stories Project. The purpose of this project is to tell the stories of the people Independence Northwest is lucky enough to serve and support with living full, independent lives. We believe that hearing/reading the life stories of those who receive our services will deepen community understanding of the uniqueness of home and community-based brokerage services. As our system continues to wrestle with changes, we must keep the principles of self-determination front and center. This project is a collaboration with disability community leader Molly Mayo.

We hope you enjoy the stories! And if you’re interested in having your story told, email us at larry.deal@independencenw.org.
