SL Start provides support to children and adults experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout Idaho,
Washington and Oregon.
We enjoy ENRICHING PEOPLE'S LIVES.
Founded in 1979, SL Start was at the forefront of the revolution that led to people, formerly living in mass institutions, returning to their communities and being supported to thrive.
It is in this spirit that we remain at the forefront of the continued progress toward true and meaningful community integration for all people experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities. For us, this is more than our work. It’s our mission.
SL Start maintains the vision of tailoring supports and services to the individual need. We believe in partnership and collaboration, honoring preferences and supporting dreams. We strive to empower and believe that every person has the right and the ability to live with success.
Hundreds of professionals make up our team. They work together to provide quality care for all of our residents, along with services that assist those we work with to successfully integrate into the neighborhoods where they live.
