Welcome to Alliance of People with disAbilities!
Established in 1977, Alliance of People with disAbilities is located in King County, Washington. We are two independent living centers, located in Seattle and Bellevue, Washington. At Alliance, we work to make our community more accessible, inclusive, and usable for everyone. Our programs are open to people with all types of disabilities.
By law, Alliance is required to have a minimum of 51 percent of the Board of Directors, management staff, and employees be individuals with disabilities: we are currently proudly over 80 percent. This ensures that people with disabilities are empowering other individuals with disabilities to understand their rights for inclusion and equality. It also guarantees that people with disabilities are the primary decision makers about the destiny of their own lives.
In addition to a strong Independent Living and Peer Support staff, the center places special emphasis on several areas. We empower youth ages 13-24 by hosting two youth in transition groups. Youth learn about the differences and how to prepare for the changes from high school to adult life.
Alliance has a new iTEC technology lab dedicated to Assistive Technology and Technology Training for anyone with any disability, both apparent and non-apparent. iTEC assists individuals to gain needed skills to operate computers, phones (office-type, android, and iPhone), iPads, AACCs, other peripherals, specialized software and mice. The iTEC staff also is familiar with specialized furniture which may assist individuals to maintain stamina levels to be able to work a part- or full-time position.
