About Us

Company Overview

SL Start was founded in 1979 to find better ways to support people with disabilities to live and work in the community. Since that time, our company has been a driving force in the field of human services, developing innovative services that enrich the lives of the people we work with. SL Start has also been an active and aggressive advocate for the rights of children and adults with disabilities, and for people who have barriers to employment. Today, that innovative spirit and commitment to advocacy is alive and strong in our company.

SL Start currently provides services for children and adults in approximately 26 cities throughout Washington and Idaho. Services include programs for children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities, community-based programs for adults with developmental disabilities, and employment programs for people with and without disabilities who have experienced a life change and are having difficulty getting and retaining employment.

If you or someone you know might benefit from our personalized approach to people and their services, or if you are looking for an organization where you will make a difference, please contact us.
