PAVE is a parent directed organization that works with families, individuals with disabilities, professionals and community members in all walks of life and with all types of disabilities. Since 1979, PAVE has provided information, training and support for over 1,000,000 individuals with disabilities, parents and professionals.
A unique and powerful combination of experience and knowledge is at the heart of PAVE. Individuals with disabilities and parents of individuals with disabilities who have a good understanding of the many challenges of accessing services comprise the PAVE staff, Board of Directors, and PAVE's active volunteer network. The approach is one of collaboration between all involved parties. This personal touch, combined with the comprehensive knowledge and information PAVE can provide, makes this organization the premier resource in Washington that families can turn to for training, information and support.
PAVE is home to many programs, such as:
Community Inclusion Program

From the very first time I walked into the PAVE office, something changed. For the first time, I felt at an advantage because I had a child with a disability. I learned to be a better parent, to my daughter with a disability and to my other children. I learned to walk with my head held a little higher; to be proud of her and who she is and above all to be strong in my ability to advocate for her.
