OPEN - Olympic Peninsula Extended Needs Housing

                         "Why Not Us?"                           An initiative to create safe, affordable housing  for individuals with Developmental Disabilities in Clallam County, Washington.

Our Mission  
is to provide safe, affordable housing for people with developmental disabilities throughout their entire adult lives. To provide positive, person-centered living solutions so they may live independent, meaningful lives with dignity and respect, as fully-included members in an integrated community. We are also committed to providing for a wide selection of meaningful educational, recreational, vocational and social opportunities.

Our Vision  
A life-long, person-centered, self-sustaining, safe, intentional community 
with appropriate support services 
in a Village and 
Recreational Development, 
here in Clallam County.


The Dream

An Intentional Neighborhood
specifically for adults with DD. Residents choose to live together because of certain 
shared characteristics 
which bond them together. 

A place that is SAFE, 
encourages SOCIAL INTEGRATION, provides SUPPORT, 
EMPLOYMENT opportunities 
and enables INDEPENDENCE, 
where possible - 
a place to live throughout all of their ADULT LIFE. 

A place NOT – 
out in the country away from society but rather in a town – 
integrated into the community through employment, shopping, recreation, medical services, etc.- yet in a safe environment with friends and neighbors and several social circles such as employment, housemates, classmates, friends, church - that would notice if you were missing, depressed or ill.

The first and foremost goal of our non-profit organization is to make a difference in as many people's lives as possible. We strive to create housing solutions for individuals with developmental disabilities to live as independently as possible. Have you ever thought about how much you could change things just by volunteering?
