Welcome to Lifespan Respite WA

Featured Organization: The Here and Now Project

The Here and Now Project’s mission is to connect and empower the paralysis community in the Pacific Northwest. “Through private support groups, community activities and larger annual gatherings, we have built a fellowship who encourage and inspire each other to ‘Do Life’ in the here and now.” Visit their website for information about private support meetings which include time at each meeting for families and spouses and where ‘real life solutions’ are found. Here Now Next is their youth-to-adult peer support program for individuals transitioning to adulthood. Their members devote time to having a good time: “Barbeques, potlucks, laser shows, hikes, bowling, dancing, indoor skydiving, and more.”  Email them at info@hereandnowprojectr.org or call 253-880-5634.
